Heightened security in Boston for 'pro-straight parade'

Heightened security in Boston for 'pro-straight parade' Police in Boston were gearing up for possible clashes Saturday between "Straight Pride Parade" demonstrators supportive of President Donald Trump and counter-protesters who accuse them of being homophobic and extremist. 

SOUTH PLAINFIELD, N.J. (AP) — Authorities have canceled a Labor Day parade that New Jersey's governor was supposed to attend because they found "destructive devices" near the parade route.

Middlesex County prosecutors and police say 55-year-old Thomas Kaiser, of South Plainfield, was charged with possession of a destructive device for an unlawful purpose.

Authorities said a suspicious package with a destructive device left at a bar in Sea Bright led them to Kaiser's home. Other devices were found near the home. Authorities did not say what the devices were.

The home is near the start of the South Plainfield Labor Day parade, so the event was canceled. Gov. Phil Murphy and First Lady Tammy Murphy were set to participate.

It's unclear whether Kaiser had an attorney. A phone message seeking comment was left for Kaiser.


This story has been corrected to show the devices were found near home, not in the home.
