The Latest: ‘All clear’ pronounced at Albuquerque airport
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) – The Latest on a security concern at the Albuquerque airport (all times local):
The Albuquerque airport is pronouncing “all clear” following a security concern involving a suspicions suitcase and airport operations have returned to normal.
The incident Saturday resulted in temporary closures of street access to the Albuquerque Sunport and of the west end of the airport terminal for about two hours.
A Police Department spokesman said the incident began when the suitcase was left unattended and an explosives-detection dog signaled interest in it.
Officer Simon Drobik said the bomb squad’s examination of the suitcase found nothing dangerous and that there was no threat made in the incident.
