BEYOND BERGEN: A suspicious bag found at the foot of a wheelchair near the screening area at Newark Airport’s Terminal C this morning turned out to be harmless, Port Authority police said.

“Anybody who’d gone through screening already didn’t have to be rescreened,” the authority’s Joseph Pentangelo told CLIFFVIEW PILOT . “Those waiting were moved out.”

A bomb dog indicated the package around 9:30 a.m., Pentangelo said.

The Essex County Bomb Squad responded.

The all-clear was given around 11:15 a.m.

“No significant delays were being reported,” he said.
