WORCESTER Mass. — A package that drew the attention of the state police bomb squad this morning was determined to contain an unwanted collection of baseball cards. Initial suspicions of the sealed box, left atop a newspaper box outside the post office branch on Chandler Street, prompted police to close off the area.
The sealed box had the word "Free" on the outside. It was heavily taped, and authorities could not easily determine its contents.
Upon further review, the box was found to contain baseball cards.
Officials, who were notified of a "suspicious package" about 9 this morning, did not immediately locate the person who left the box.
Traffic was briefly detoured from the area.
I hate to admit it. But, I'm originally from Worcester, Mass.
