Boston Logan Airport terminal
BOSTON – A suspicious package caused evacuations in Terminal A at Boston Logan International Airport on Sunday.
Massachusetts State Police reopened the station after removing a suspicious item inside a bag, later determining it was a degraded Playstation console, according to Boston 25 News.
State police officials said TSA agents in Terminal A were checking luggage for a Delta flight when they saw the suspicious item around 4:05 p.m. Sunday, prompting them to call the MSP bomb squad to the scene.
The outlet reported that the console caused an “anomaly” in the image that was produced when it was x-rayed.
Videos filmed by Roy Haag outside the airport show emergency vehicles. The beep can be heard.
“Due to recent delays and cancellations, passengers are advised to check with their airline the status of their flight before coming to the airport,” airport officials wrote on Twitter.
Soldiers gave complete evacuation shortly after 5 pm and the occupants were able to re-enter the building.
“I had a flight at 6pm and I was about to get to the airport.
When I got out of the car, a group of people ran up screaming, so I got back in the car.
I didn’t hear what they were screaming about, said Pam Lovano.
Then we walked around the stations again.
By the time we got back, the cops had blocked off Building A and I was able to see people standing outside.”
