CONCORD (AP) — Several streets around the New Hampshire Statehouse in Concord have been reopened after police investigated a suspicious package that turned out to be a duffel bag full of clothes belonging to a homeless man.
The package was discovered shortly after 7:30 a.m. Wednesday. A state police bomb squad was called to the scene and a bomb-detection robot was used.
The scene was cleared about an hour later. Sgt. William Graham says the square-shaped bag was found near the entrance of the Statehouse plaza.
He said political demonstrations were planned outside the Statehouse later Wednesday regarding Planned Parenthood, so there is concern about security. The Executive Council was scheduled to meet and vote on funding for the organization; the council cut off one-third of the group's public funding last August.
