Authorities: Fake explosives found in NY town pose no threat

NEWBURGH, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities are investigating how some fake, inert explosive devices turned up in parking lots in a town in New York’s Hudson Valley, while noting that there’s no danger to the public.

The FBI tweeted Sunday about the peculiar finds in Newburgh. It’s about 70 miles (112 km) north of midtown Manhattan.

Newburgh police say the objects were discovered in parking lots of a mall and a nearby supermarket around 6:30 p.m. Saturday.

Authorities haven’t released a description of the objects or specified how many were found.
