Operations Resume at Terminal 2 After Evacuation

Minneapolis-St. Paul International AirportMINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Passengers are being allowed back into Terminal 2 at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport after a suspicious package prompted an evacuation.

Airport spokeswoman Melissa Scovronski says officials with the Transportation Security Administration found a suspicious device in a checked piece of baggage around 4:30 p.m. Sunday. Passengers were evacuated from the terminal, and were allowed back in about 6:30 p.m.

Scovronski did not have details on the nature of the device. The Bloomington Police Department’s bomb squad took the object from the airport and continued to investigate.

Scovronski says officials determined the device was in baggage that belonged to a woman — airport police are questioning her. She was not arrested.

Scovronski didn’t have details on the woman, but said she was a passenger on a flight that was delayed by the evacuation.
