NYPD probes 3 van thefts after possible terror threat
NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Police Department is paying special attention to the thefts of three vans after a tip of a possible car bomb on the 9/11 anniversary.
The department's chief spokesman Paul Browne says the van thefts may be nothing more than the work of savvy criminals, but they are being scrutinized to eliminate the possibility of something more sinister.
One of the vans was stolen from a Jersey City, N.J. facility. The other two were stolen last week from a company that does work at the World Trade Center site.
The U.S. government is chasing a tip that al-Qaida may have sent three men to the U.S. on a mission to detonate a car bomb in New York or Washington.
