Device with gas cans, wires found in car in NJ
NEWARK, N.J. A police bomb squad was dispatched to examine the Dodge Omni on Wednesday after a passer-by reported it as suspicious. Newark Police Director Garry McCarthy says police found two gasoline canisters sitting on top of a toolbox inside the car. Wires protruded from the toolbox and a battery pack nearby, but nothing was connected. McCarthy says: "At this point we know it's not a bomb." Police do not know why the car was there or whether it might have been a hoax. Detective Sgt. Ronald Glover says authorities have identified the owner of the car through motor vehicle records and are attempting to contact that person.
