Another Scare In Boston
BOSTON (AP) — Authorities in Boston say a man will be charged with possession of a hoax device after he was stopped near the Boston Marathon finish line last night with a rice cooker in backpack. Police say the man was stopped after he was acting strangely. They say he dropped the backpack and told an officer what was inside. As a precaution, police destroyed the backpack and another one found nearby. The incident happened hours after ceremonies to mark last year’s deadly Boston Marathon bombings.
