CANTON Police have shut down a short stretch of Route 138 while the State Police bomb squad investigates a report of a suspicious vehicle parked outside the Bay State School of Technology.
Jennifer Mieth, spokeswoman for the states Department of Fire Services, said the bomb squad was called in after Canton authorities received a report of a suspicious vehicle at the technical training school, located at 225 Turnpike St.
Canton police received the report at approximately 7:15 a.m. Tuesday, officer Michael Lank said. State and local officials were still investigating the report as of 9:15 a.m.
Mieth said the vehicle is a junker filled with a lot of debris. Although it was still unknown whether the vehicle posed a threat, she said its helpful that reports like these come in following Mondays deadly bombings at the Boston Marathon finish line.
After yesterday, everybody is on heightened alert, and we appreciate calling in to report anything out of place, Mieth said.
The section of Route 139 between Randolph Street and Edward Street was closed down while police searched the school. Traffic heading northbound was being diverted west onto Edward Street to connect with Randolph Street. Southbound traffic was being forced onto Randolph Street.
This is an active investigation. Please check back for more details as they become available.

Me, too-—The only Canton I know of is in TX.
Does anyone have any idea where this Canton is?
ping me please with any updates.
there is one in Michigan, a stone’s throw from Dearbornistan.
Here in Massachusetts you can travel North on a South route. It’s hard to explain. Canton southwest of Boston.
Forgot that one, makes sense in context of events. Also a Canton Mississippi.
128 went in a circle
Google Bay State School of Technology: 225 Turnpike St, Canton, MA 02021
my confusion comes from the route number(s); is it Rte. 138 or Rte. 139?
I think 138
If you check the Topic it cleary says “Massachusetts”
I don’t ever use google, but I could have used GoodSearch.com
I just didn’t think of doing it-—I’m up before my brain got up this morning—LOL!
rte 138 is a local road going through Canton. Rte 139 is a local road going through Randolph. Route 128 is also known as Rte 95 and Rte 93 in some places.
It has been said that when you have to explain the sarcasm, the sarcasm is lost. (Next time, I’ll just move on, unresponsively.)
My post was a sarcastic indictment of the text of the article. Not knowing whether the re-poster erred or the original author erred, the whole article was diminished by the error.
