Federal Agents Respond To Suspicious Device In Yonkers

Westchester County Bomb Squad and Yonkers Police responded to a car at an apartment parking lot this morning after a woman reported a suspicious device in the trunk of her car. Officials secured the area around High Street and Broadway, using a robot to approach the vehicle and later bomb technicians pulled out a propane tank and wiring from inside the trunk. Yonkers Police Commissioner Charles Gardner explained that, “It looked like an explosive device. There were wires and other components that made it appear to be a rudimentary type, explosive device.” Federal ATF and FBI agents were reportedly on the scene and at this time, it has been determined that the device does not pose any risk. The investigation remains ongoing to determine the purpose and intended use of the device.
