After returning from his errand to get Henry a "Cold Drink", it seems detective Owens carries a large Styrofoam cup with a lid attached by pinching the lip at the top of the cup and swinging it as he walks.

A potential spellbinder and one of Hackman's best performances
Most of this dialogue-intensive film takes place in an office in a Puerto Rican Police Department with a top detective (Freeman) grilling a wealthy attorney (Hackman) about the rape/murders of young girls. Featuring outstanding performances by both principals and technical and artistic excellence, the film's story unfolds piecemeal as it scrutinizes the Hackman character with painful deliberation while holding out the "whodunnit" carrot until the very end. More mature audiences with an appetite for this type of film are likely to find "Under Suspicion" a spellbinding tour de force by Hackman.
