MIAMI – Miami-Dade police officers evacuated a passenger plane on Monday night at Miami International Airport, so a bomb squad could investigate.

Greg Chin, a Miami-Dade Aviation spokesman, reported there was a suspicious package report.

Over 140 passengers exited JetBlue flight 2892 to John F. Kennedy International Airport, as Miami-Dade Fire Rescue personnel waited nearby as a precaution, according to Chin.

Detectives were asking anyone with information about the case to call Miami-Dade County Crime Stoppers at 305-471-8477.
