    Police are investigating after two men aroused suspicion because of the pressure cookers they had in the trunk of a car when they pulled up to a Manhattan hotel Friday evening, authorities said.

    The pressure cookers were similar to those used to make the Boston Marathon bombs, and a doorman at the Intercontinental Hotel on 48th Street called the cops after seeing them, according to the NYPD.

    The young men, both from Idaho, claimed they had purchased the devices to cook food back home.

    Police say no charges have been filed and no arrests have been made but an investigation continues.
