‘Grenade’ Causes Evacuation at Airport

There was a scare at Miami International Airport on Saturday after a suspicious item was found in a bathroom.

Some areas of the airport had to be evacuated . . .

Passengers were asked to stay across the street as the bomb squad tried to figure out what the item was.

Ultimately officials realized it was a toy grenade they had found.

“It looked real enough for us to implement our safety procedures,” said Detective Lee Coward with Miami-Dade Police. “It was determined by the bomb squad and the K-9 units to be inert. It would be speculation at this point to determine whether it was a novelty item that perhaps a child left behind in the bathroom or whether someone meant something more malicious by that.” (Read more from “‘Grenade’ Causes Evacuation at Airport” HERE)
