ROMULUS, Mich. (AP) — Authorities evacuated the smaller of two terminals at Detroit Metropolitan Airport for about two hours and detained one person as a bomb squad responded to a suspicious item at a security checkpoint.

The airport said in a statement that a "suspicious object" was found at a Transportation Security Administration screening checkpoint at 5:50 a.m. at the airport's North Terminal in Romulus. The airport said the check-in lobby was shut down.

The airport said the squad left the terminal with the item, which had been in an X-ray machine, and travelers were allowed to return about 8:20 a.m.

Airport spokesman Scott Wintner says in an email a person associated with the object was detained, but he didn't have details.

The TSA said in a statement the evacuation was a "precautionary measure."
