Below is a statement from Big Foot Moving & Storage after today’s explosives scare at Hanscom Air Force Base:

Today, one of our trucks was stopped for a routine vehicle inspection while delivering a military personnel shipment to the Hanscom Air Force Base. The security forces at the gate detected some materials on the exterior of a lift van that they felt required additional investigation causing a temporary closure of the Vanderberg Route 2A Gate and an evacuation of nearby facilities. Big Foot Moving & Storage employees and company personnel complied with all request of state, federal and military authorities managing the inspection and investigation. Our vehicle and personnel have been cleared and we are thankful that the incident has been resolved. We assure our customers that we take this matter very seriously. The safety of our crew, customers and their goods is of utmost importance to us. We thank all the authorities and military personnel for their thoroughness and their commitment to protecting our country every day.
