Brooklyn Bridge Reopens After Police Investigate Abandoned Vehicle

Police examined an abandoned vehicle on the Manhattan side of the Brooklyn Bridge

The Brooklyn Bridge has reopened after police investigated an abandoned vehicle on the Manhattan-bound side and issued an all-clear. 

The SUV was found unoccupied at about 5:15 p.m. and had no license plate, which triggered precautionary measures from the bomb squad and K-9 units. Traffic was closed in both directions for over two hours as police responded. 

After investigation, police issued an all-clear and removed the Dodge Durango. The Durango was impounded, and police were attempting the identify the owner of the SUV.
