NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (AP) _ Authorities say a police bomb unit found nothing dangerous inside a car with Massachusetts plates that was pulled over in the city of Niagara Falls.
Police officials say a state police bomb disposal team used a robot to remove several items from the car Friday after it had been stopped earlier in the morning by officers checking out a report of a suspicious vehicle with Massachusetts license plates.
Officials say the two men in the car have been released after being questioned and their personal items have been returned. Police say the men are from Massachusetts and were visiting friends in the area.
The police response and search of the car came amid an intense manhunt in Massachusetts for one of the Boston Marathon bombers.
