Bomb squad investigates van left in Times Square

Bomb squad investigates van left in Times Square

An area around New York City's Times Square has been blocked off while a bomb squad investigates an abandoned van.
The bomb squad is using a robot-based camera to approach the vehicle Wednesday. Police say the area around 42nd Street between Seventh Avenue and Broadway has been blocked off as a precaution.
Security is tight as New York City prepares for millions to gather for its New Year's Eve celebration that centers on Times Square.
Police aren't sure how long the vehicle has been parked there.
The white van is a 1992 Dodge with tinted windows. A placard from a nonexistent law enforcement agency is on the dashboard. It has no license plates.
