Security breach at SeaTac
Officials at Sea-Tac Airport reported that a passenger entered a secure area through an exit lane March 19, which resulted in a security breach. Authorities cleared several concourses until the man was located.
Airport spokesman Perry Cooper said that meant 1,000 to 1,500 passengers in the C and D concourses and central terminal had to leave the area.
They were then re-screened through other security checkpoints.
Port of Seattle police and Transportation Security Administration officials found the passenger at about 9 p.m. He was questioned and released. Cooper said the issue was a misunderstanding, and "not anything of a security concern to passengers."
After the man was cleared, passengers began the rescreening process. Cooper says the checkpoint backup was cleared by about 10:30 p.m.
