DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – The Mockingbird DART station and the surrounding area, including the Angelika Theater, were evacuated Saturday after a police dog alerted authorities to a passenger onboard with two suspicious packages, a spokesman said.
Riders traveling through downtown stations reportedly expressed alarm after a man asked them for help carrying a duffel bag and a large box.
Bomb technicians with the Dallas Police Department determined the packages were not a threat about two hours after the evacuation, said DART spokesman Morgan Lyons.
“He was actually trying to pay people to help him get packages on and off the train,” Lyons said.
The man with the packages remained with DPD through the afternoon, though he was not arrested.
The response to terrorism can be more dangerous than the terrorists. Relaxing into the warmth of anger and war against terrorism will not honor those who died in the attacks of 9/11. We have to think.
