This is an update to a previous story. The original version is as follows:

APD is working a suspicious package report at the cargo area of ABIA. Police tell FOX 7 package tested positive for explosives.

We are told a call to 9-1-1 came in just after 7 Tuesday night from an employee at Southwest Airlines cargo facility.

The caller told police that a package was tested for explosives twice and that each test came back as positive.

The cargo airport is not the terminal portion of the airport where passengers get on and off planes. No passengers are affected.
