Times Square Bomb Scare: Suspicious Brown Bag Triggers False Alarm

A suspicious brown bag abandoned atop a pay phone near Times Square Tuesday night led to the third false-alarm bomb scare since Faisal Shahzad's botched plot left the city feeling jitters.

The NYPD bomb squad raced to Broadway and 47th St. after the sketchy brown paper bag was spotted about 9 p.m., and cops sealed off several blocks along Seventh Ave., police said.
