White powder scare at PBIA

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - HazMat and Palm Beach County Fire Rescue crews investigated suspicious substances at Palm Beach International Airport Monday.

The first substance was discovered at  the first floor baggage claim around 2  p.m.

During that call a second suspicious substance was found in a second baggage area.

As a result crews closed luggage pick up areas 1 and 6.

Investigators eventually determined they was not hazardous. They turned out to be rice cereal and a hair product.

The baggage areas have since reopened.
