NIAGARA FALLS, NY (WGRZ) -- Police say 3-4 "suspicious" packages have been removed from the car that was stopped early this morning at 19th and Elmwood in Niagara Falls.

Two people who were in the car are still being questioned and are said to be cooperative.

The vehicle is a black Nissan with Massachusetts license plates.

Sources early this morning said the two occupants were Russian nationals, but police now say that is not true.

The FBI tells 2 On Your Side they are aware of the situation and that their joint-terrorism task force is assisting the NYSP.
