BROWARD COUNTY, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A man is in custody after police say he claimed to have a bomb in his bag after he was told to pay a baggage fee at Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport.
BSO shared this with BocaNewsNow.com:
A Fort Lauderdale man was arrested for making a false bomb threat at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.
According to Broward Sheriff’s Office Threat Management Unit, at around 5 p.m., Thursday, March 17, Alin Paul Olteanu stated there was a bomb in his luggage. The statement occurred after Olteanu was told he would have to pay an extra fee for the second bag he was carrying.
Witnesses say the suspect consolidated his two bags into one, and when asked by staff what he planned to do with the second bag, he stated, “I will leave it right there, and by the way, it has a bomb in it.”
BSO deputies, along with BSO’s Bomb Squad and Threat Management Unit detectives responded to investigate. The suspect was taken into custody, and the threat was determined to be unfounded.
Olteanu faces one count of false report bomb explosive weapon of mass destruction.
The investigation continues.
