Suspicious bottle found in Milford

Milford police are waiting for test results on a liquid found in a bottle that shut down a major road.

Officers say a resident found the bottle at the VFW hall on Naugatuck Avenue yesterday afternoon.

Police say it may have been a homemade bomb because there had been reports of explosions in the area throughout the weekend.

No one was hurt and police say there is no indication the VFW was targeted.
