WHITE PLAINS, N. Y. -- The baggage area in Westchester County Airport in White Plains was briefly evacuated Tuesday after Transportation Security Administration agents spotted suspicious items while examining luggage, according to News 12 Westchester.

The agent saw something cylindrical, along with some wires, so the area was cleared around 1:30 p.m. Airport officials closed drop-off and pickup lanes outside, News 12 Westchester reports.

After an investigation by the Westchester County Police Hazardous Devices Unit, the items turned out to be homemade spices and wires from earbuds. An all-clear notice was issued at about 2:15 p.m., News 12 Westchester says.
