Suspect Plants Rice Cookers Around New York City, Causes Rush Hour Panic

NYPD via AP

New York City has had its share of scares in recent years. In September 2016, a man planted two pressure cooker bombs in the neighborhoods of Chelsea and in New Jersey. One of them detonated and injured dozens of bystanders. The suspect, reportedly inspired by ISIS and Al Qaeda, was sentenced to life in prison. And I don't even need to get into how every September 11 there is a faded, yet ever present sense of fear in New Yorkers.

In other words, this is the last place to mess with citizens and leave strange devices around. Yet, the NYPD is currently searching for a person of interest who left three suspicious devices around downtown Manhattan, including at the Fulton Street subway station, one of the busiest hubs in the city. All three devices turned out to be harmless rice cookers, but the discovery disrupted the schedules of tens of thousands of commuters.

The police released two images of the supposed suspect.

In a press conference just shy of 10 a.m. ET, the NYPD confirmed the three suspicious devices were empty rice cookers and gave the all clear.

Mayor Bill de Blasio thanked the NYPD for its swift action.
