DENVER (AP) – Police and security officials have given the all-clear after checking a suspicious package at a ticketing counter at Denver International Airport.

Airport spokeswoman Laura Coale says a suspicious package was reported at the British Airways ticket counter at about 3 p.m. Monday. Employees and travelers were moved away from the area as police and the Denver bomb squad inspected the package.

Coale says police cleared the package by 6 p.m. She says a passenger was with the bag, but referred further questions to the Transportation Security Administration.

A TSA spokesman says nothing hazardous was found.

Coale says the airport’s operations weren’t affected by the incident, but there may have been a few flight delays.
