Bronx vendor thanked by mayor for vigilance
Bronx resident Lance Horton was thanked today by Mayor Michael Bloomberg for his vigilance after he alerted officers about a suspicious vehicle in Times Square Saturday.
Horton, who also got a phone call from President Barack Obama, says he never thought twice about alerting police when he saw a suspicious car in Times Square last weekend.
The vehicle, a Nissan Pathfinder, was smoking and officers say they discovered several bomb-making components inside. Authorities traced the vehicle to a suspect they arrested overnight.
The mayor credited Horton, firefighters and police for their actions.
