Nothing of a ‘threatening manner’ found during Cleveland Hopkins Airport security incident

​CLEVELAND -- Cleveland Hopkins International Airport said nothing of a threatening manner was found as authorities investigated after a baggage handler noticed an unattended bag at around 2 p.m. Tuesday.

TSA and Cleveland police were notified after the bag was spotted at the ticketing check-in area outside of the building.

A K9 thought it was suspicious, so police officers searched it and, once again, found nothing threatening. The bag's owner was identified, interviewed and sent on their way.

Planes were taking off and landing during periods of the security incident. The airport resumed normal operations when the all-clear was given.
