Boston police are investigating several mysterious devices found Wednesday throughout the city, whose presence gripped the entire city.NOW MORE THAN EVER!!!!
While Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick labeled bomb threats that accompanied the devices a "hoax," bomb squads remained cautious as they investigated the wired devices that resembled circuit boards, the Boston Herald reported.
"It's a hoax -- and it's not funny," Patrick said of incidents, which prompted the shutdown of Interstate 93, a portion of the Charles River and the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority.
Boston officials originally said the presence of the devices likely was an elaborate prank and Turner Broadcasting said it will issue an apology for causing public panic with its reports.
The network later learned that devices were placed throughout certain U.S. cities, including Boston, as part of a marketing campaign for the Cartoon Network's TV series, "Aqua Teen Hunger Force." Turner owns Cartoon Network.
One of the Boston bomb squads detonated one of the devices with a small blasting device and upon further investigation ruled out the presence of explosives in the item.
