Breaking: MBTA Transit Police Investigate Suspicious Pressure Cooker At Davis Square Station

Earlier today, November 30, 2022, at approximately 13:30 hours, Police Officers from the MBTA Transit Police responded to a call for a suspicious object at the Davis Square Station in Somerville.

When MBTA officers arrived at the station, they immediately located the ‘suspicious device’ which appeared to be a type of pressure cooker. The object was located at the bike racks behind the station, in what could be considered a high traffic area. Unsure of the objects contents, Officers closed off the station and surrounding area while simultaneously calling in the Bomb Squad for EOD assistance.

EOD Officers responded to the scene and isolated the device, pushing back the perimeter and the public to a safe distance. Pedestrians in the area were moved to a separate location for their safety. The officers x-rayed and examined the device and eventually deemed the pressure cooker to not be an explosive.

Unfortunately, devices similar to this one have been commonly found in Boston as of late. This incident occurs less than two weeks after a pressure cooker was found near TD Garden, which had residents obviously shaken. Luckily, neither of these devices posed a threat.

There is currently no further information about who could have placed the pressure cooker in the area. Anyone with information is urged to contact MBTA Transit Police Investigators. If you have any information relative to this incident please contact TPD Criminal Investigations Unit at 617-222-1050 or send an anonymous text to 873873.
