Times Square Streets Reopen After Car Bomb Found

Sunday, 02 May 2010 10:52 AM

The streets in New York's Times Square have reopened after police removed a Nissan Pathfinder in which a bomb was found.

Police found the device in the smoking sport utility vehicle on Saturday evening. They then cleared the streets of tourists and dismantled it. The vehicle was taken away Sunday morning and streets are open to traffic.

Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly says the SUV contained three propane tanks, consumer-grade fireworks, two filled 5-gallon gasoline containers, and two clocks with batteries, electrical wire and other components. He says a black metal box resembling a gun locker was also recovered.

Authorities say a Connecticut license plate on the vehicle did not match up. Police are looking for additional surveillance video.
