DEVELOPING: BOMB SQUAD Called After Suspicious Packages Found at Trump Tower

The New York police department was called to investigate after four portable batteries were found in the lobby of Trump Tower New York Friday evening.

The NY bomb squad was also called in after two other devices were found.

President Trump and First Lady Melania are currently in New Jersey.

NBC New York reported:

The NYPD is investigating after four portable batteries were found in the lobby of Trump Tower on Friday evening, two senior law enforcement officials tell News 4.

Officials say an all-clear was issued at President Trump’s namesake skyscraper about 7 p.m. on Friday night, not long after a custodian first told officers about two unattended devices in the lobby.

Two additional devices were found during a broader search, and an NYPD bomb squad was called to investigate the scene.

A bomb dog sniffed the devices but did not sit. If the K-9 had, it would have indicated that the devices were dangerous.

Police did not say where the devices came from or if there were more sinister motives at play.
