NYPD is looking for whomever’s responsible for leaving three empty rice cookers which prompted evacuations.
The devices, two left in a lower Manhattan subway Friday morning and a third discovered two miles away were all deemed safe. However, the panic they caused was real.
“It is possible that somebody put out a bunch of items in the trash today and this guy picked them up and discarded them. It is possible that this was an intentional act, and we have a couple of steps to go,” said Senior NYPD official John Miller.
Photos of a white male, in his 20-30s, have been released.
