According to the City of Miami Springs, someone had called in a bomb threat targeting Miami International Airport.  The call originated from the Days Inn Hotel.

According to the City, Miami Springs Police Officers “noticed a suspicious suspect at the Valero Gas Station” upon arriving at the scene.  The subject apparently dropped a back pack when he saw the cops and attempted to “walk away.”  According to the City, the suspect said “the contents of the backpack would kill many police officers.”

The Police were able to arrest the subject while the bomb squad inspected the backpack and determined it to be safe.
