The passenger passed through the security checkpoint at the
airport's McNamara Terminal around 8:45 p.m. and then walked out
of an exit. He then returned though the same exit without
getting screened again, said airport spokesman Brian Lassaline.
Authorities located the passenger in the terminal, which is more
than a mile long and has 121 gates, and reviewed video of the
incident before issuing the all-clear, Lassaline said.
The passenger was taken into police custody for further
questioning, he added.
The terminal is served by Delta Airlines and its partners Air
France and KLM, according to the airport website.
