NIAGARA FALLS (AP) — Authorities say a police bomb unit is removing items from a car with Massachusetts plates that was pulled over in the city of Niagara Falls.

Trooper Jeffrey Bebak (BEE’-bak) says Friday that a state police bomb disposal team is using a robot to remove items from the car that was stopped earlier in the morning. Bebak says two men are being questioned by police but he has no other details.

The robot was seen removing three packages from the car and depositing them next to the vehicle. The street has been blocked off.

The Buffalo News reports that police say the car was occupied by brothers who had what appeared to be proper Massachusetts identification.

The response came amid an intense manhunt in Massachusetts one of the Boston Marathon bombers.
