Agawam Police say a resident came to the police station to report finding a suspicious item in front of his home.  The resident brought the item to the police station and it appeared to be a “soda bottle bomb” according to police.

The Agawam Fire Department requested the Hazmat Team respond and the Massachusetts State Police Bomb Squad also provided support.

It was later determined that the item was not a threat.

Police and the State Fire Marshall’s Officer are investigating.

Back in October Agawam Police made an arrest in a string of soda bomb incidents that happened around town.
