Suspicious Letter Triggers Bomb Squad Response to Smith & Wesson

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — A letter that appeared suspicious Monday caused a response from emergency crews.

Dennis Leger, aide to Springfield’s Fire Commissioner, says that around 11:30 a.m., someone working at Smith and Wesson’s mailroom examined an envelope and apparently found something suspicious about it.

The city’s arson and bomb squad was then called out to the Roosevelt Avenue facility to assist Mass. State Police and Springfield Police in an investigation into that envelope.

Leger notes that further x-rays determined that the envelope was not dangerous and the scene was cleared about an hour later.
