BOISE -- Police were called to investigate a "credible security threat" at the Boise Airport first reported at 2:30 p.m. Tuesday.

TSA screening is back open after being closed for over an hour. Aircraft was being held at the gate while police looked into the threat.
 
Patti Miller with the Boise Airport would not specify the nature of the security threat, but did say the area of concern was just beyond TSA screening.

TSA Security Manager Jess Carson said a bomb threat had been called into the terminal.

Miller says several hundred passengers experienced a delay due to the threat.
