Suspicious Package Evacuates Airport Terminal

 

A suspicious package triggered an evacuation of a terminal at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

The Humphrey terminal was shut down for about two hours Friday morning. Airport spokesman Patrick Hogan said a woman with a propane tank in a box was stopped by TSA agents and wasn’t allowed to board her flight. So, the woman left the box at an airport gift shop and boarded her plane.

Hogan says the woman was taken off the plane and questioned by airport police. Business resumed after the Bloomington bomb squad determined the tank was not an explosive device. Hogan says he doesn’t know if the tank contained propane.
