Updated: There’s a Suspicious Package in Times Square


And it’s not the Naked Cowboy’s. The suspicious package is reportedly either a cooler or an “unattended bag,” at 46th and Broadway. MSNBC reports that bomb squads are X-raying it now, and police have closed off the surrounding area until they figure this out. We’ll keep you updated. [MSNBC, USAT, WP]

Update: Reports of suspicious packages have risen 30 percent since the failed car bombing last week.

Update 2: Police found books and a bottle of water inside.
