Times Square

The police and F.B.I. investigators have tracked down the owner of the 1993 Nissan Pathfinder that contained the makings of a crude car bomb discovered in Times Square over the weekend, but that person is not considered a suspect, the police said on Monday. “We’ve identified and spoken to the registered owner,” said Paul J. Browne, the Police Department’s chief spokesman, who stressed that the police had not yet identified a suspect or a motive. Nonetheless, the resolution of the vehicle’s provenance is a significant advancement in the 38-hour-old investigation.  Investigators are still reviewing security cameras from Saturday evening when the car was found.  The tapes showed a white man, appeared to be in his 40’s, who looked over his shoulder and removed a layer of clothing.  Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr seemed optimistic in comments he made Monday morning. “I think that we have made really substantial progress,” Mr. Holder told reporters in Washington. “We have some good leads.”
