GRAND FORKS - A bomb threat prompted officials to evacuate the Grand Forks International Airport early Saturday morning, Jan. 28.

Grand Forks officers responded at 5:14 a.m. to the airport after a traveler told a ticket agent there was a bomb in his bag, according to a news release. The suspect, who was taken into custody there without incident, was identified as Paraman Radhakishan, 53.

Operations were suspended while the Grand Forks Regional Bomb Squad "evaluated the validity of the threat." Officers did not find a bomb or threatening devices and the airport is now operating as normal.

Radhakishan faces terrorizing charges and was booked at the Grand Forks Correctional Center.
