LAX Flights Delayed by Security Breach

Thursday, 08 Apr 2010 09:57 AM

 

A security breach has delayed at least 14 flights at Los Angeles International Airport while authorities look for a man who didn't undergo proper security screening.

Airport spokeswoman Nancy Castles says the man was picked out for secondary screening but instead grabbed his carry-on bag and went on through at Terminal 7 around 5 a.m. Thursday.

Security screening at the terminal and connecting terminals has been halted as airport police look for the man.

The terminals house United, Continental, Delta and smaller airlines.

The terminals are still open and people who passed screening are being allowed to board planes, but unscreened passengers can't and have to wait for the all-clear.

Castles says more flights could be affected because it's the morning peak travel time.
