Police say they’ve identified a “person of interest” after a suspicious device was found Thursday at the McCook Regional Airport, but there’s no word on an arrest.
The device was located on an exterior wall of the airport.
It was a Cool Whip container with two wires protruding from the lid. Inside, there was a live shotgun shell and some metal objects.
The device was “neutralized” by a bomb squad from the Nebraska State Patrol.
The airport was thoroughly searched and reopened after no other threats were found.
