Gun Search Shuts Part of Cincinnati Airport

March 28, 2005|From Times Wire Reports

Part of Cincinnati's main airport was temporarily closed after a passenger passed through a security checkpoint with what appeared to be a gun in a carry-on bag, authorities said.

Baggage screeners noticed an X-ray image that resembled a gun after the passenger had picked up the bag and left the checkpoint.

Part of Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky International Airport in Hebron, Ky., was closed for about two hours as officials searched for the passenger and the weapon. Neither was found, and flights were back on schedule by the afternoon, airport officials said.
