The State Fire Marshal's Bomb Squad Wednesday examined a suspicious package at Circuit Court Judge Darrow Glaser's Hagerstown home before determining it was a box of sewing supplies that had been sent to the wrong address.
"Basically, misdirected mail," said W. Faron Taylor, a spokesman for the Office of the State Fire Marshal.
Glaser, who was on the bench at the time, could not be reached for comment.
Taylor said someone at Glaser's home called the Washington County Sheriff's Department, which notified the fire marshal's office. The package, which was discovered on Glaser's porch, had an address that was not Glaser's, officials said. Taylor said nobody at the house was expecting a package.
Taylor said he was not aware Glaser receiving any threats.
Attempts to contact the intended recipient were unsuccessful, officials said.
Dogs trained to sniff out explosives did not react in a way that indicated the package contained explosives, and bomb technicians X-rayed the package, officials said.
