Frederick ER reopens after suspicious package investigation

WASHINGTON — Police are investigating a suspicious package that supposedly burned two adults in Frederick and forced an emergency room to stop admitting patients.

Around noon on Tuesday, two men arrived at Frederick Memorial Hospital complaining of burns and respiratory problems after they opened a package that came in the mail at a home on Military Road in Frederick, according to police.

The men brought the package with them to the hospital emergency room, prompting the emergency department to close down to new patients and reroute ambulances to other hospitals, said Lt. Clark Pennington, commander of the investigations division for the Frederick Police Department.
