CHAMPLAIN, N.Y. (WCAX) - A suspicious package led authorities on Thursday to shut down the U.S.-Canada border crossing between Quebec and Champlain, New York.

According to Champlain Fire Commissioner Chris Trombley, crews responded to the port of entry on Interstate 87 at about 7:40 p.m. for reports of a suspicious package on the Canadian side.

The crossing remained closed for several hours as authorities investigated. It has since reopened.

There’s no word yet on what was in the package or who it belonged to.
