Suspicious Package Evacuates Hamilton Sundstrand

WINDSOR LOCKS, Conn. (AP) -- Aerospace manufacturer Hamilton Sundstrand says a suspicious package that prompted the evacuation of 1,000 workers was found to be not hazardous.

The Windsor Locks building, which had been closed Thursday morning, later reopened.

A Connecticut state police bomb squad investigated the package. A spokesman for Hamilton Sundstrand, a subsidiary of conglomerate United Technologies Corp., said it was discovered at about 10 a.m. Thursday at a building where aftermarket repairs are made. The building was cleared as a precaution.

Hamilton Sundstrand spokesman Leo Makowski had no details about the package. A call to state police was not immediately returned.
