Bomb scare at airport
Tue, 30 Mar 2010 22:46:28 GMT —
Airport security found an unattended bag by the flags just outside of the airport entrance.
When security couldn't confirm who the bag belonged to, they called the fire department and police bomb unit.
Airport Director Yvette Aehle says the security guards shut down the airport and evacuated the few employees working while they waited on police to arrive. "The bomb unit decided to blow up the bag to see what was inside of it because they couldn't find out who owned the bag. They found out that it was a suitcase with clothes in it" says Aehle.
The 6:30 a.m. morning flight was delayed by one hour due to the bomb scare, and officials say everything is back to normal at the airport.
