Police briefly resume searches of all vehicles
Maryland Transportation Authority Police resumed checking all vehicles entering Baltimore-Washington International Airport for nearly four hours yesterday - a tactic that has been employed sporadically and that authorities said was not prompted by a specific threat.
The searches began at 2 p.m. and ended about 5:45 p.m., said Cpl. Gregory Prioleau, a police spokesman. More than 1,700 vehicles were stopped, producing a traffic backup of "a little more than half a mile," he said.
Officers checked the interiors and trunks of each vehicle, and used mirrors to look underneath them, he said.
