Suspicious Item Spotted In Cabin Delays Flight To Denver

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) – Authorities say a Southwest Airlines flight from Albuquerque to Denver was delayed after a suspicious item was spotted in the cabin before takeoff.

Albuquerque International Sunport spokesman Dan Jiron says the plane was scheduled to depart before 5 p.m. Monday.

Instead, the plane was evacuated and taxied to a remote part of the airport and passengers were taken by bus back to the terminal.

Jiron says the item and plane was inspected and cleared by airport authorities and a canine.

He says it’s unclear what the suspicious item was, but passengers are being rescreened before boarding the plane again.
