NORWALK - Connecticut state troopers are back on normal patrol this morning after they were put on a heightened alert yesterday.

State officials were in close contact with Massachusetts State Police to help in the search for Dzokhar Tsarnaev, the Boston Marathon bombing suspect. Lt. Paul Vance of the Connecticut State Police says they were made aware of a car Massachusetts police were looking for and they put an alert throughout the state for residents to be on the lookout in case Tsarnaev tried to flee into Connecticut.

A team of Connecticut police, including a bomb squad, were also sent up to Boston to help with the investigation.
