Suspicious Truck Sets Off Bomb Scare in Connecticut, but No Explosives Found

BRANFORD, Conn. -- The FBI says that a tractor-trailer that agents and police officers had surrounded at a travel stop on Interstate 95 in Connecticut is carrying no explosive devices.

Spokesman William Reiner said Friday that the truck is not a danger to the public.

Branford first selectman Anthony DaRos had said earlier that the truck was surrounded, but it's not clear what led to the situation.

The Hartford Courant reports that state troopers took the driver and a passenger into custody at gunpoint, then began searching the truck.

Branford is about 80 miles north of New York City.
