Security Scare Ends At Sea-Tac Airport

A bomb scare on board a plane at Sea-Tac Airport is over.

An airport spokeswoman says a suspicious object found on an Alaska Airlines plane is not a threat.

Spokeswoman Terri-Ann Betancourt says no one on board the plane
had claimed the object. It appears to be a cell phone that has been
tampered with.

Operations at the airport have returned to normal.

Another spokesman, Perry Cooper, says the pilot of the 737 reported the package to the FAA on a flight from San Jose.

There was no bomb threat.

When the plane landed at 11:41 it was directed a taxiway on the west side of the airport where the 104 passengers and five crew members were evacuated.

Cooper says takeoffs were delayed while the bomb squad checked the plane.
