NEWBURGH, N.Y. (AP) -- Authorities are investigating how some fake, inert explosive devices turned up in parking lots in a Hudson Valley town, while noting that there's no danger to the public.

The FBI tweeted Sunday about the peculiar finds in Newburgh. It's about 70 miles north of midtown Manhattan.

Newburgh police say the objects were discovered in parking lots of a mall and a nearby supermarket around 6:30 p.m. Saturday.

Authorities haven't released a description of the objects or specified how many were found.
