FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — A person has been detained after a suspicious package found at the main gate of a naval air station in Fort Worth prompted a lockdown of that gate.
Officials at Naval Air Station Fort Worth Joint Reserve Base said in a statement the package was discovered by a Naval Security Force member Thursday morning.
The base initially went on lockdown. Officials soon allowed inbound and outbound traffic through a commercial delivery gate, but kept the main gate closed. They reopened it Thursday afternoon.
Air Force and Fort Worth police bomb-disposal personnel performed a remote procedure on the package, and Naval Criminal Investigative Service agents questioned the person detained and took him away.
Officials at the installation, which was formerly Carswell Air Force Base, are releasing no further information.
