Porstmouth International Airport at Pease was briefly evacuated Monday morning following a bomb threat.
The threat, which was sent through a fax machine, was received shortly before 10 a.m., according to Chase Congreves, the airport’s manager of administration.
The note said an explosive was located within the airport, but didn’t give a specific location. According to Congreves, it demanded a ransom be sent to a Yahoo email account.
Local and state police swept the airport with the assistance of K-9 dogs, and determined the threat didn’t appear credible.
