A suspect is in custody after an explosive device was found in a suitcase at the Port Authority Bus Terminal Wednesday evening.

Port Authority Police were alerted to the unattended suitcase in the lobby of the deli around 5 p.m. local time. A bomb sniffing dog was brought in and police eventually opened the bag, discovering a ‘knife, bolt cutters, screw drivers and an improvised explosive device,’ WNBC reported.

After reviewing surveillance video, officers tracked down 38-year-old Arsenio Mason, who told police he was looking for the suitcase.

Mason reportedly said he was headed to Seattle. Police did not say why the suspect was carrying the materials.

He was subsequently booked on charges of criminal possession of a weapon, reckless endangerment, possession of burglary tools and criminal possession of a controlled substance.
