      KCI evacuation due to comment about a pickup truck

      A person's comment about a pickup truck that might be carrying a bomb prompted the evacuation of a main terminal at Kansas City International Airport.

      The Kansas City Star reports flights scheduled to be arriving at Terminal B were rerouted to Terminal C while the Kansas City bomb squad searched the truck.

      Airport spokesman Joe McBride says the person who mentioned a bomb to an airport employee at 6:30 p.m. Sunday was taken into custody by airport security. Passengers were allowed to return to the terminal around 8:30 p.m.

      McBride says it was not immediately known if explosives were found.
