GRAND RAPIDS - The Michigan State Police and Transportation Security Administration has given the all clear for travelers and employees at Gerald R. Ford International Airport after it was put on lockdown for approximately 90 minutes Friday morning. Around 7 a.m. a suspicious package was found in Concourse A. That wing of the airport was evacuated and sealed off. A bomb squad from the Michigan State Police was called in to investigate, as were explosive sniffing K-9 units. Around 8:30 a.m. the airport reopened after it was determined the package was not a bomb and did not pose a threat. The Associated Press is reporting that the package contained engineering materials used to test concrete. The man carrying the case was headed to Minneapolis on a 7 a.m. flight. WZZM 13 News was first on the scene and on air with the information. Stay with us for more information on WZZM 13 News at Noon.
