Packages were dropped outside the front foyer at NBC O&O WVIT and near ABC affiliate WTNH. The areas were shut down and the bomb squad was called in to investigate, West Hartford police said. The Courant has details on a a suspect:

West Hartford police said they are looking for a white man, possibly in his 40s, with grayish hair who was driving a late model small silver car, possibly a Chevrolet Cobalt or Monte Carlo with a spoiler and sunroof.

>Update: a WVIT spokesperson tells TVSpy that police have removed the package and are evaluating it.
