Bomb Squad Responds To Orlando International Airport Over Unknown Metal Canister

Orlando, Fla. -

Orlando police closed part of the Avis and Budget rental car return area which is located just outside the OIA main terminal today after an abandoned SUV was discovered with an unknown metal canister inside.

After investigating the canister they discovered it was a scuba tank. No flights were delayed over the incident because each of the four airside gate areas are located a considerable distance from the main ticketing and baggage terminal accessed by four different monorail trains.

Police have not released the name of the SUV owner.
