NEWBURGH, N.Y. — FBI New York and the Newburgh Police Department were investigating several ‘fake, inert explosive devices’ placed in public areas around the city, officials said Sunday.
The FBI says the recovered devices do not pose a threat to the public.
“Do not attempt to pick up any device, if discovered,” FBI New York said. “Call 911. We ask anyone who saw or knows something about the devices to call the FBI at 212-384-1000.”
