‘Security threat’ grounds airliner
DENVER (AP) — Officials say one person was taken into custody following a “possible security threat” on a Denver-bound flight.
Denver International Airport spokeswoman Laura Coale said Frontier Airlines flight 601 from Knoxville, Tenn., landed safely at 7:30 p.m. MDT Friday and was moved to a remote location.
She said in a recorded statement that the FBI and police responded due to “a possible security threat on board,” and one person was taken into custody.
Coale said a police bomb squad also responded, but did not provide any more information on the nature of the possible threat.
