NEW YORK - A device described as a crude bomb was found in a parked sport utility vehicle Saturday evening in New York City's Times Square, and police evacuated buildings and cleared streets of thousands of tourists in "the Crossroads of the World."

 New York Police Department spokesman Paul Browne said the device was found after a mounted policeman spotted a box smoking in the back of a sport utility vehicle about 6:30 p.m.

No problem!

You not an idiot!!!

Put the URL (link) on your cyber clipboard...highlight the web address (url) and use a Ctrl+C to copy the url. (you can right click and use this menu as well)

Come to the post, add the text you are going to link, as I did above. While you have that text highlighted, click the Link Icon on your dialog box menu...it is just to the left of the "Add a Sweetpea" option, kinda looks like a sideways 8.

You will then see a little dialog box open up and there is an area where you paste the url you have stored on your clipboard. (it is best to then choose "open in a new window" so that those of us following your link are not leaveing Cafemom to view it.)

Hope this helps, and you 'll get it!

May 2 (Bloomberg) -- A device that appeared to police to be a car bomb in a sport utility vehicle parked on 45th Street and between 7th and 8th avenues near the heart of New York City’s Times Square was dismantled without detonating, Deputy New York Police Commissioner Paul Browne said.

A mounted police officer first observed smoke coming from the vehicle, a Nissan Pathfinder SUV, and called for back-up. Bomb squad technicians, using a robotic remote bomb dismantler, took apart a crude propane explosive device that included an unidentified powder, gasoline accelerant and a possible timing device, said Browne, the department’s chief spokesman, in a telephone interview.

Police evacuated part of the heavily trafficked area, which includes the Manhattan theater district, at about 6:35 p.m. after police and the fire department responded to the report. There were no injuries and the bomb appeared to be unable to explode, Browne said.

“Police are still working at the scene,” Browne said. “We have no suspect and no motive associated with it. There are video cameras in the area and we believe there are witnesses who observed a man leaving the car.”

Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who first assumed office in January 2002, weeks after the Sept. 11, 2001, attack on the World Trade Center, was in Washington D.C. attending the White House Correspondents Association dinner.

He returned to the city upon hearing about the incident and arrived at the scene early this morning along with Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly.
