Bomb squad clears suspicious vehicle at Orlando airport

Nothing found after investigation, police say

ORLANDO, Fla. – Nothing suspicious was found Wednesday morning at Orlando International Airport after a K-9 unit got a hit on a vehicle near the main terminal, Orlando police said.

The Orlando Fire Department bomb squad was called in as a precaution to investigate the vehicle, officials said.

The vehicle was found at 9:30 a.m. on level 1 on the A side of the main terminal after a K-9 sweeping the area got a hit on the vehicle, according to the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority.

Orlando Fire Department officials said they sent about 13 units to the scene, including bomb squad and hazmat teams.

Orlando police, airport security and local law enforcement officers were also responded.

The airport remained open during the investigation, airport officials said. Travelers can check orlandoairports.net for flight status information.

Michael Pettigrew, 26, was arrested by Orlando SWAT members and released on bond last week.
