Metal detector goes down at JWA

A terminal at John Wayne Airport in Orange County was evacuated late Friday and dozens of passengers were rescreened after security discovered that eight people had walked through an inoperable metal detector, officials said.

Officials noticed that the metal detector wasn't working about 8 p.m., and, as a security precaution, had about 100 passengers in the area return to the screening area, TSA spokeswoman Jonella Culmer and a spokeswoman for the airport said.

"There were no negative findings," she said.

As a result, two flights were delayed about 15 minutes each, the airport spokeswoman said.
