ORLANDO, Fla. – Hazmat crews responded to Orlando International Airport early Wednesday after a suspicious white powder was found in a passenger’s bag. 

Orlando Police say a worker with United Airlines made the discovery in a plastic bag just after midnight. 

Investigators discovered the bag belonged to a passenger who was originally set to fly to Orlando but instead ended up rerouted to Ft. Lauderdale after missing his initial connection.
