Several terminals at Miami International Airport reopened after a brief closure Monday afternoon because a piece of luggage that was left abandoned, according to Miami-Dade police.
Just before 5:30 p.m., the security checkpoints in Concourses G, H and J as well as the ticket counters and upper and lower roadways near Concourse H were back in service after the luggage was deemed safe.
“Miami-Dade Police has given the all-clear to the suspicious item,” said Greg Chin, a spokesman for MIA.
Miami-Dade Det. Daniel Ferrin said in an e-mail that the bomb squad was called out to investigate and cleared the item.
Never miss a local story.
Those passengers who already made it through security to the gates were not impacted by the closure, said Chin.
