Southwest cargo facility at LAX evacuated in explosives scare

The Southwest Airlines cargo facility at Los Angeles International Airport was evacuated Monday after TSA detected trace amounts of exclusives on a guitar case, police told me.

The Los Angeles Police bomb squad was called out, but discovered nothing amiss. The facility was soon “re-populated” — a fancy way of saying employees were let back in. The incident happened at around noon and took about a half hour, according to a Southwest spokesman.
