HICKSVILLE - A suspicious vehicle called in by two railroad workers sparked a flurry of police activity near the Hicksville train station late Thursday night into Friday morning.
Trains on the Port Jefferson, Ronkonkoma and Oyster Bay branches were suspended through Hicksville during the police activity. Police determined that the area was safe shortly after midnight after a bomb squad investigation.
The police activity took place just hours after the government said they were investigating a specific, credible but unconfirmed terror threat against the U.S.
All trains are now running through the station.
