Suspicious Van in Times Square


From Fox News:

DEVELOPING: New York City police closed down part of Manhattan’s Times Square on Wednesday after authorities identified a suspicious vehicle, Fox News has learned.

Investigators have called in a bomb squad to examine a 1992 Dodge van with tinted windows that has been parked at the location for two days.

A placard from a nonexistent law enforcement agency is reportedly on the dashboard of the vehicle, which has no license plates.

Police say the area around 42nd Street between Seventh Avenue and Broadway has been blocked off as a precaution.

Upwards of a million people are expected to pour into Times Square for the annual New Year’s Eve celebration Thursday night.
