CLIFTON, N.J. (AP) — Police believe a suspicious vest that was detonated after a New Jersey thrift store owner thought it resembled a bomb was actually a movie prop.

The explosion rocked a portion of downtown Clifton early Friday.

Clifton police say the owner of New 4 U on Lakeview Avenue was going through items he bought at a storage auction when he made the discovery.

A six-block area was evacuated Thursday night as bomb squad members inspected and destroyed the device.

No injuries were reported.

The location of the storage auction has not been revealed.
