Cylinder of Marijuana Closed Route 85 Closed in Waterford

Police closed Route 85 in Waterford after finding what looked like a pipe bomb, but say it’s a cylinder that appears to be filled with marijuana.

A driver who was passing by found a metal cylinder that was capped on both ends near Interstate 395 and Industrial Drive, so police closed the road in the area of the Waterford Speedbowl/Harvey Industries as a precaution.

Members of the State Police Emergency Services Unit arrived and determined it was not an explosive. Inside they found a green leafy substance inside and said it might be marijuana.

Police reopened the road just before 3 p.m. and ask anyone with information about the package to call 860-442-9451.
