NYC bomb scare sparked by apparent science project left on bus


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.
