The Montgomery County Sheriffs Department Bomb Squad responded to the intersection of Front and Jefferson streets in East Greenville Tuesday night for another suspicious glove found hanging from a stop sign.
And a note found inside that glove isn’t providing any clues as to the incident’s perpetrator.
The single latex glove, tied with a dark pink ribbon, was filled with an unknown liquid and was found tied to the back of the sign. Police said it was identical to the gloves found at a Jefferson Street, East Greenville property last Tuesday morning.
According to Upper Perk Police, an unidentified neighbor found the glove at approximately 5:45 p.m. and called police. After responding to the scene, the East Greenville Fire Company determined the bomb squad should be called to deal with the unknown liquid. Pennsburg Fire Company also assisted at the location.
Bomb squad personnel arrived at approximately 6:30 p.m. and rendered the scene safe. The glove was found to contain liquid soap and another note was found inside on what appeared to be orange paper.
The note was tied to the inside of the glove, according to Upper Perk Police Det. Sgt. Robert Seville, and contained several words which seemed to be unrelated. Its content was similar to the note found inside one of the gloves found last week.
Seville said the subject matter was not threatening but police are not releasing the exact content of the notes.
Police are not ruling out the possibility that the glove was placed at the intersection at the same time as the other three gloves, found approximately a block and a half away, but was not found until Tuesday night.
“It’s better to take precautions in this sort of case,” he said. “But there were no threats and neither incident was dangerous.
“We do want to stress, again, that people shouldn’t downplay these types of situations. It’s always better to call the authorities. We don’t want to take any chances [with anyone’s safety].”
An investigation is ongoing into the incidents. Anyone with information is asked to call Upper Perk Police at (215)679-8203.
