GLEN HEAD, N.Y. (AP) - Police say a Long Island school was briefly evacuated as a precaution after a caller reported seeing a pressure cooker near the cafeteria.

A Nassau County police spokesman, Detective Lt. Richard LeBrun (leh-BRUHN’), said Wednesday that someone was being extra-cautious because of the pressure-cooker bomb that exploded last week in Manhattan.

LeBrun says the harmless pressure cooker found near the North Shore High School cafeteria in Glen Head apparently had been discarded by school staff.
