HUDSON – Police are looking into charging a Massachusetts man with felony-level offenses after he allegedly caused a scare at a Hudson business Wednesday morning.

Police said that just after 7 a.m., an employee of TRM Inc., a local subsidiary of Tower Resources Management located at 17 Friars Drive, contacted authorities, reporting that he had received text messages stating there were hazardous materials left on his desk.

The individual who sent the text messages, later identified as James Weeks Jr., 28, of Taunton, Mass., said the material was a biohazard, police said, but wasn’t specific.

Hudson officials called the Nashua Fire Rescue hazardous materials team to the scene.

In the meantime, Hudson medical personnel evaluated the employee and transported him to a local hospital as a precaution, police said.

The hazardous materials crew inspected the employee’s work area, police said, but they found nothing of a threatening nature.

Police investigating the incident learned that Weeks works for the company, mainly in its Massachusetts offices.

Local police contacted Taunton police, who made contact with Weeks, they said.

Although they determined no threat to human life existed, police said the “alarming nature of the incident” prompted police to investigate the case as a felony-level false public alarm.

Police said the investigation continues, and that charges may be forthcoming.
