Groton — The Naval Submarine Base activated security protocols Tuesday afternoon to stop a vehicle that initially was perceived as a gate runner, but later was determined to be a confused driver who posed no threat, the base's public affairs officer said.

Base Public Affairs Officer Chris Zendan said in a statement that about 2 p.m. Tuesday the "SUBASE New London security team responded in accordance with established procedures to a perceived gate runner." The security team deployed emergency barriers and closed the gates, and safely stopped the vehicle of concern.

"SUBASE Security subsequently determined there was no threat and that the driver had been confused," Zendan said. "SUBASE then returned to normal operations, opening the gates.”
