Suspicious package scare at Lindbergh Field

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Two boxes deemed suspicious in the cargo area at Lindbergh Field Tuesday turned out to be harmless, according to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.

A dog checking packages alerted at the two boxes around 9:40 a.m., said Lee Swanson of the SDFRD.

"We followed all the protocols and did everything that needed to be done," Swanson said.

He said that around two hours later, the boxes were found to hold more packages containing a variety of items, including electrical cords, candles and cell phone covers.

No passenger service at the airport was disrupted, he said.
