On April 15, 2014 at 8:19AM, the Marion Police Department responded to the Lockheed-Martin facility, off Route 6 in Marion, for a suspicious package found at the rear of one of the parking areas.
A witness reported that a vehicle had pulled into the lot and a young male had left the vehicle with a package and placed it under a bush, next to the parking area, before leaving the area. Officers confirmed the location of the package.
The area was secured and Bomb Squad units from the Massachusetts State Police and the United States Navy (Newport, RI) responded and, using specialized equipment, were able to determine the package was not explosive, but contained marijuana.
As of this afternoon, a juvenile suspect had been identified. This incident is still under investigation.
Marion Fire/EMS, Massachusetts State Police D Troop and Lockheed-Martin Security assisted at the scene.
