A terminal was partially evacuated and flights were disrupted at LaGuardia Airport Saturday morning, as police investigated a suspicious package.

The disruptions lasted about 90 minutes.

Police arrested the man, thought to be in his 50s, after swooping on the terminal at around 8:50am local time (1:50pm United Kingdom time).

No explosive was found and no one was injured, the station reported.

"Due to police activity, LGA concourses A and B at Terminal B are not accessible and passengers should expect delays", the airport tweeted.

A representative for the Port Authority told the Associated Press (h/t Seattle Times) that airport had returned to its normal operational schedule by 9:30 a.m.

A traveler has been captured at LaGuardia Airport after experts say he debilitated a specialist at the Spirit Airlines ticket counter.

Commuters and passengers are also cautioned to allow extra travel time as traffic is at a standstill getting into the airport from the Grand Central Parkway.
