Troopers Respond to Potentially Suspicious Vehicle at Hanscom AFB

At approximately 0945 hours today we were notified of a suspicious truck that had been stopped by base security at Gate 1 at Hanscom Air Force Base. A standard screening of the truck and its cargo revealed indicators of potentially hazardous material. The Massachusetts State Police Bomb Squad has responded and our Air Wing is responding as well. As a safety precaution, an area around the gate has been evacuated.

PLEASE NOTE – Until we have further information, we are asking that all news helicopters move out of the air space over the area in question for safety reasons.

We will update you when more information is available.
