Air Force base evacuated as bomb squad investigates 'suspicious truck'

The truck from Big Foot Moving and Storage was stopped at a gate to the base

In a message on the base website, security forces said they became concerned Thursday morning during a routine vehicle inspection at a gate.

The FBI is also assisting in the investigation, but declined further comment.

A police bomb squad and air wing were deployed to the scene.

Security Forces were doing a routine vehicle inspection when around 9:00 A.M. when they detected something that caused response actions. The vehicle in question is a moving truck owned by Big Foot Moving out of Acton. "There was a second check done that also tested positive", Massachusetts State Police Major Francis Leahy said.

The base's Vandenberg Gate was closed and some buildings were evacuated. The truck has since been cleared, but some items that were removed will be taken to a special facility for testing. A spokesperson for the trucking company was quoted by the Daily Mail, saying, they are unsure of what is going on inside the base, adding, " it was only supposed to carry household goods and had to deliver the material at the Air Force base.
