This morning, just after 10:30, Troopers were dispatched to United Services in Killingly for a report of a male coming by taxi with an explosive device in his backpack. United Services reported this man to be Floyd Lambert of Danielson. During this time, neighbors of Lambert came to Troop D to report that Lambert had shown them a bag in his backpack and that it looked like a bomb. Troopers responded and evacuated the site. Information was then received that Lambert was calling for a taxi from Pomfret St in Putnam. He was calling from the Generations Health Care Center next to Day Kimball Hospital. Putnam Police was then notified. Putnam Police and Connecticut State Police responded to Generations Health Care. They entered the property and located and arrested Lambert who was standing inside next to a backpack. Lambert stated that there was no explosive device in the backpack and it was a misunderstanding between him and his therapist. The building was evacuated and the Bomb Squad was notified. They did deem the bag safe and no explosives were found. Lambert was charged with Breach of Peace and released on a $5,000 Non-Surety bond. Lambert is expected in Danielson Superior Court on July 12th.
