LPD investigates bomb threat at Lawton-Fort Sill Regional Airport

Posted: Updated:

Lawton- Scary moments for a group of passengers who arrived at the Lawton-Fort Sill Regional Airport early Monday.

Police confirm there was a bomb threat made to the airport shortly before the last plane of the day landed. The caller said he had heard some kids talking about it and then hung up.

Police began searching the airport terminal and property. Passengers who had just arrived from Dallas were ordered to stay inside the plane. One passenger told 7NEWS they waited for about 30 minutes before officials let them leave. They were already delayed in Dallas while they waited on the pilot.

Officers say they never located anything suspicious at the airport and the threat remains under investigation.
