BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Travelers had to evacuate terminal A at Logan Aiport Sunday afternoon after a possibly suspicious item was found in a luggage bag, according to State Police.

TSA agents located a possibly suspicious item in a checked bag during a luggage screening at around 4 p.m. State Police confirmed its bomb squad examined the luggage at around 5 p.m. on Sunday and cleared the item, which turned out to be a PlayStation video game console.

The console was in a "degraded condition", either due to age or damage, and in turn, the condition caused some abnormalities in the x-ray screening, according to State Police.

Passengers re-entered the terminal shortly after 5 p.m. after State Police gave the all-clear.
