Foxborough hotel evacuated after suspicious devices found inside


A Foxborough hotel was evacuated Friday afternoon after authorities, who were investigating an individual, discovered suspicious devices inside, the Foxborough Fire Department said. Local authorities responded to America’s Best Value Inn at 105 Washington St. around 4:30 p.m. when devices were found, and they evacuated the building, said Fire Captain Donald Treannie. A State Police bomb squad was called, and the team removed the devices and destroyed them away from the hotel, Treannie said. Police took a suspect into custody, he said. Foxborough police were unavailable for comment. The hotel was reopened, and people were allowed to reenter the premises, Treannie said.
