Tent and needles found inside East Longmeadow park

Posted: Updated:
EAST LONGMEADOW, MA (WSHM) -

East Longmeadow police discovered a tent Friday morning with a number of hypodermic needles inside it at Heritage Park.

Police tell CBS 3 it appears homeless people may have been living in the tent.

They said it was hidden in the back woods of the park.

They're also looking into whether or not whoever was living in the tent is connected to shoplifting cases at a nearby shopping plaza.

The East Longmeadow DPW removed both the tent and the needles.

Police don't know how long the tent was there because it was hidden by trees until the leaves fell off this fall.
