Police Seek Men Who Found 'Chelsea' Bomb That Never Detonated

The crime not being reported here is that real-estate agents are tricking people into thinking 27th and 7th is in Chelsea.

Cops and federal agents want the public’s help in finding two men who came across a pressure cooker in luggage in Chelsea believed to have been left by bomber Ahmad Khan Rahami, officials said. The two men, dressed in casual clothes, were captured on video Saturday between 8 and 9 p.m. on W. 27th St. between 6th and 7th Aves., police said. The duo came across the airline tote bag on the sidewalk, removed the pressure cooker containing explosives and walked away with the luggage. They left the device behind. The bomb on W. 27th St. was shock sensitive device, so "these two men are very lucky," NYPD Chief of Counterterrorism James Waters said. It was found after the Chelsea bomb exploded four blocks away on W. 23rd St. “The FBI is interested in speaking to these individuals and recovering the luggage,” according to the FBI. "We have no reason to believe they are involved. Looks like they were more interested in taking the bag than what is in it. We don't even know if they are aware of it." Anyone with information can call the FBI's tip line at (800) CALL-FBI (800-225-5324), the local FBI office or the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate.
