Detonated Suspicious Device At New Jersey Shop Was A Movie Prop
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.
