Lunch Pail Causes Stir at Old Greenwich Station

GREENWICH, Conn. – A suspicious package at the Old Greenwich Metro-North train station Friday afternoon turned out to be a lunch pail and nothing more, police stated.

Before 3 p.m. the police department received a call from Metro-North Railroad asking for assistance in clearing the train platform after a “suspicious package” was reported, according to Lt. Kraig Gray, spokesman for the Greenwich Police Department.

The Stamford Bomb Squad and police teamed up to find the “package,” which turned out to be a lunch pail. “It contained some pipes or something of that nature, but I can’t tell you exactly. Bottom line is, it’s nothing,” said Gray.

By 3:54 the area, was clearing out in time for the evening rail commute.
