Service has resumed on several subway lines at Times Square station after a hand grenade scare Monday afternoon, officials said.

 

The MTA reported around 2:40 p.m. that the A, C and E lines are now making stops at the station but that customers should still expect delays.

 

Police confirmed that initial reports of a hand grenade at the station were incorrect and said all was clear.

 

The object NYPD were called to investigate turned out to be a toy Chinese lantern, police said.
