Fireworks box found at NYC bomb suspect's home

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) -- Federal investigators at the home of the Times Square bombing suspect have removed a fireworks box among other evidence at the property in Bridgeport, Conn.

The box is labeled "Silver Salutes." Those fireworks are similar to the M88s authorities say were found among containers of gasoline and other materials left in an SUV meant to explode in New York City on Saturday night.

Faisal Shahzad, a 30-year-old Pakistani-born U.S. citizen, has been charged in the failed bombing attempt. His neighbors in Bridgeport say federal agents arrived late Monday to his triple-decker with the name "F Shahzad" on the mailbox.

The road was blocked Tuesday as agents in white protective suits removed and examined items from the home, including the fireworks box, which was being marked as evidence.
