2 Arrested After Package Found In Florida Airport

Two people were arrested after the discovery of two suspicious packages — one of which authorities said “certainly had some destructive nature” — closed the Jacksonville, Fla., airport for five hours.

A source close to the investigation told NBC News that the main suspect, dressed all in black, was heard making a threat, and that two other people near him had run away. The source also said that counterterrorism officials were already aware of the suspect.

Airport officials confirmed the arrests early Wednesday but had no further details.

On Tuesday night, the airport was evacuated after the two packages were found, one in a terminal and the other in a garage. There was no information on what was in the packages.
