TSA Statement on Potential Suspicious Packages

Friday, October 29, 2010

"This morning, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) was made aware of potentially suspicious items on board cargo flights that landed safely at Newark Liberty and Philadelphia International airports. Out of an abundance of caution, local law enforcement evacuated the UPS cargo facilities at both airports and the planes were moved to remote locations where they were met by law enforcement officials. After security sweeps, the planes and their cargo have been cleared."
