NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities say a police bomb unit that pulled over a car with Massachusetts license plates in the city of Niagara Falls, N.Y., found nothing dangerous inside.

Police officials say a state police bomb disposal team used a robot to remove several items from the car Friday after it had been stopped earlier in the morning by officers checking out a report of a suspicious vehicle with Massachusetts plates.

Officials say the two men in the car were released after being questioned and their personal items have been returned. Police say the men are from Massachusetts and were visiting friends in the area.

The police response and search of the car came amid an intense manhunt in Massachusetts for one of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects.
