Suspicious backpack held laptop, porn

  |   April 27, 2010 at 4:00 PM
PHILADELPHIA, April 27 (UPI) -- Philadelphia authorities said an abandoned bag that sparked the closing of a major airport roadway turned out to contain a laptop computer and "a lot of porn."

Homeland Security Chief Inspector Joseph Sullivan said a police officer spotted the abandoned backpack about 7:30 p.m. Monday near the entrance to Philadelphia International Airport's Terminal A-West on Arrivals Road and a bomb-sniffing dog detected a suspicious scent within the package, the Philadelphia Daily News reported Tuesday.

Sullivan said Arrivals Road and portions of the terminal were closed for about half an hour while bomb technicians were sent to the scene.

He said the bag was eventually found not to contain any dangerous materials.

"There was a laptop with a pretty large battery in there," he told the Daily News, "and porn. A lot of porn."

Airport officials said no flights were delayed as a result of the incident.
