ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A suspicious item found in the cabin of a Southwest Airlines plane that delayed a flight from Albuquerque to Denver earlier this week was an anti-wrinkle vibrator.

Albuquerque Aviation Police say the item was found in the seat back of a passenger's seat Monday evening.

The unidentified passenger reported the item to the flight crew and it was moved to the galley.

The plane was evacuated and taxied to a remote part of Albuquerque International Sunport and passengers were taken by bus back to the terminal.

Aviation police talked to the passenger that had found the item.

KOB-TV reports that police did a full sweep of the plane and passenger luggage and found nothing of concern.

Passengers were rescreened before boarding the plane again and flying to Colorado.
