ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - A United Airlines flight has been delayed at a New York airport after a male passenger uttered the word “bomb.”

Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple says another passenger alerted the flight crew at Albany International Airport, and the man was taken into custody Wednesday morning.

The pilot requested a search of the aircraft, which was bound for Newark, New Jersey. All passengers were evacuated and everything was unloaded from the plane while K-9 units searched it.

No bomb was found. The flight was allowed to take off after the delay.

Apple says the police response was routine.
