Suspicious Package in Airport Cargo Area Not A Threat: MAST

An airport spokesperson said the investigation is not impacting airport operations.

A suspicious package found in a cargo building at the San Diego International Airport was determined safe, and an evacuation order for the building was lifted.

The report was made at around 1:15 p.m. when a worker handling packages in the shipping and receiving area x-rayed the object, San Diego Harbor Police Department Lt. Victor Banuelos said.

Bomb squad investigators arrived around 45 minutes later, according to Banuelos.

The San Diego Fire Department's bomb squad and Metro Arson Strike Team (MAST) also responded.

MAST investigators determined the suspicious item was benign and employees were allowed back in the building.

Airport spokesperson Rebecca Bloomfield said the investigation did not impact airport operations.
