An apparent science project left behind on a Staten Island MTA bus sparked an hours-long NYPD investigation overnight – even drawing in the department’s bomb squad, cops said.
Cops responded around 11:15 p.m. Monday to the MTA bus depot on Yukon Avenue near Forest Hill Road in New Springville, where a cleaner discovered the contraption – made up of two small canisters with an unknown clear liquid and wires protruding from the top, and a digital clock attached, authorities said.
The NYPD’s bomb squad showed up just before 1 a.m. Tuesday, cops said.
Investigators deemed the device safe around 2:30 a.m., police said.
A preliminary investigation indicates it appears to be a discarded science project, according to cops.
Police did not have additional details about the science project or whoever had left it behind.
