Police, Bomb technicians responded to Lafayette Street in Fairhaven


Fairhaven Police responded to a Lafayette Street residence Friday afternoon on September 19th, 2014, to conduct a welfare check on a male party at that location. The welfare check was requested by family members who stated a man at that location had made some irrational statements.

Officers responded to check the well being of the man and noticed some suspicious items on the property. As a precaution, the Massachusetts State Police Bomb Squad responded to ensure the device was not dangerous. Bomb Technicians arrived and quickly determined the device posed no risk to public safety. In addition to the State Police, the Fairhaven Fire Department stationed in the area until the scene was deemed safe.

All measures taken were strictly precautionary until it could be determined the device was in fact a hoax. It appeared to be clumsily assembled and highly unlikely to be a threat. However, officials decided not to leave anything to chance and decided to call in experts to confirm there was no danger to the public.
