From @wgrz: A police source tells 2 On Your Side that New York State Police have pulled over a vehicle in Niagara Falls allegedly with two Russian nationals in the vehicle.

The car was pulled over at 19th and Elmwood in the Falls.
Bomb techs and a robot are being used to investigate four suspicious backpacks in the vehicle.
Another source tells us the vehicle has Massachusetts license plates

WGRZ continues to report:

Niagara Falls police say they erred on the side of caution, but found nothing of concern.

Twitchy will monitor this situation and update as new details emerge.
