April 1 (UPI) -- A terminal at the Detroit Metropolitan Airport was evacuated Monday after authorities found a suspicious device, CNN reported.

Authorities decided to shut down the north terminal after the Transportation Security Administration noticed a suspicious looking device in a passenger's carry-on luggage, according to airport spokesman Michael Conway.

An explosives team rushed to the terminal, but found no explosive devices. The owner of the bag was detained during the search.

An airport spokesperson said the terminal remained closed for two hours and was cleared for re-opening around 8:30 a.m.
