Possible car bomb found in Newark near railroad overpass Police in Newark, N.J were investigating a possible explosive device Wednesday found inside a vehicle that was parked near a railroad overpass, the Star-Ledger in Newark reported. The Newark bomb squad used robots to search a Dodge Omni containing two tanks of gasoline and wires, Sgt. Ronald Glover of the Newark police told the paper. Police are saying that they are unsure if the wires were connected to the device, contrary to original reports. Police have also managed to identify the owner of the vehicle through motor vehicle records and are currently attempting to contact the individual. The name and address of the owner were not immediately released. An FBI spokesman confirmed that it had agents on the scene assisting the Newark Police Department, who were leading the investigation. Special Agent Bryan L. Travers, an FBI spokesman in Newark, told the Fox News Channel that the FBI was first made aware of the situation around 10:30am local time. No further details were immediately available. The car was parked underneath a railroad overpass that services both Amtrak and NJ Transit trains. Train service had not been interrupted. â€œIt does at this point seem to be routine,â€ the paper quoted NJ Transit spokesman Dan Stessel as saying. â€œNewark police are certainly checking it out with an abundance of caution." Last month, 30-year-old Faisal Shahzad pleaded guilty to a failed bombing attempt using a sport utility vehicle rigged with a homemade bomb in New York Cityâ€™s Times Square on May 1.
