    A suspicious package discovered outside a home on Wade Avenue in Bloomfield turned out to be nothing dangerous, police said.

    Police said the landlord at 61 and 63 Wade Avenue found the unmarked package inside and an enclosed porch and opened it to discover some wiring. The landlord threw the package onto the front lawn and dialed 911 around 3:30 p.m.

    Authorities arrived to inspect the package and described it as small and containing wiring and LED lights. Bloomfield police were not able to determine whether the package contained explosives, so a Hartford Police Bomb Squad was called in. The bomb squad worked to disassemble the package and determined that it contained no threat.

    No one was arrested and no injuries were reported, although the fire department and volunteer ambulance company were standing by.

    Now police are investigating to determine who delivered the package and why. Officers theorize that it may have been left in an effort to scare someone.
