E-cigarette found in smoking suitcase at PortMiami

An electronic cigarette prompted police and a bomb squad to investigate a suspicious package Sunday at PortMiami.

Miami-Dade police were called to Terminal D at the port after a report of smoke coming from a purple suitcase.

Police investigated and determined that an e-cigarette was found in the suitcase, Detective Robin Pinkard said.

The port was deemed safe shortly after and an all-clear was given, Pinkard said. 

Cruise ship operations were not disrupted by the investigation, which occurred in Terminal D, an unoccupied area of the port.
