HOUSTON — Houston Airport System was notified Saturday of a bomb threat that luckily turned out to only be a set of golf clubs.
Investigators said the man who made the threat never got on the plane and was detained at an airport in St. Louis. He was planning to take Southwest Flight 6869 to Houston’s Hobby Airport.
He claimed to have checked in a bag carrying explosives. That bag made it to Houston about 11:30 p.m. and was immediately inspected by HPD officers. It was reportedly cleared within eight minutes.
A spokesperson for the Houston Airport System confirmed no bomb was found— only a set of golf clubs and a few other non-threatening items.
It still unclear what charges the man will face if any.
