“Apparently, a passenger made an utterance that there was a bomb in his bag(s),” Barbera said in a statement.

The person who made the threat was arrested by the FBI, she said.

The area was evacuated so bomb-detection dogs and the sheriff’s bomb squad and the FBI could check two passenger bags. Noting was found.

Concourse C reopened just after 8 p.m.
