Unattended backpack brings police response in Nashua


NASHUA - City police responded to the Social Security Administration Building Friday morning for a suspicious backpack left unattended.



The Nashua Police Department's Hazardous Device Unit arrived at the building at 175 Amherst St. shortly after 10 a.m.

"Certainly, we didn't know what to expect," said Police Chief John Seusing, adding a federal Homeland Security vehicle also arrived on the scene.

"But, I am told that the situation has been resolved."

According to Seusing, the backpack was forgotten at the building, and the owner was located.

There was nothing of any concern within the bag, said the chief.

The building was evacuated while authorities investigated.
