EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP, N.J. - Atlantic City International Airport was evacuated for three hours Friday after a U.S. Transportation Security Administration employee discovered a suspicious item in a family restroom.
The small package was determined by a New Jersey State Police bomb squad not to be a security threat, said Kevin Rehmann, a security and communications manager for the airport.
Rehmann said the package was found shortly before noon, just after another unattended item was discovered near the Midlantic Jet Aviation terminal, a separate area adjacent to the airport's main terminal used for charter flights and private jets. That package had apparently fallen off a service truck. It also was determined not to be a threat to airport safety, he said.
