SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Authorities closed a parking lot east of Lindbergh Field for about 90 minutes Wednesday after an attendant reported seeing someone put a suspicious-looking object into a van.
The object turned out to be an ammunition magazine containing .22-caliber bullets.
A parking lot attendant told authorities he saw someone get out of a car and put something in a van in a lot off Sassafras Street about 12:30 p.m., Maurice Luque of San Diego Fire-Rescue Department said.
Members of a bomb squad used a robot to check out the van, eventually determining that what the man put inside was an ammo clip.
The parking area was reopened shortly before 2 p.m., Luque said.
