Abandoned box triggers Minneapolis airport bomb scare

A terminal at Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport had to be partially cleared for a few hours on Friday after a passenger left a box containing a fuel tank.

The Southwest Airlines passenger, a woman, went to the ticket counter in the terminal at about 6:00 am local time and tried to check in the box, which had pipes attached, Hogan said.

“Rather than take it back to her car, she simply abandoned it in the ticketing lobby next to a travel express store and she went through security herself without the package and boarded a plane,” [airport spokesman Patrick] Hogan said.
