ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Albuquerque police were called out to the Avis Budget rental car at 3400 University SE Sunday morning due to a suspicious device on their property.
The Albuquerque Police Department’s Bomb Squad/EOD, the FBI and ATF were on scene while the entire rental car facility at the airport had been shut down.
Official say a “safe and credible explosive device,” was found under a car while being checked after a rental return.
People with rental returns were diverted to the 3200 block of University SE as a temporary parking was established just north of the area to accommodate returns.
The Albuquerque Sunport did not shut down during the event and no flights were affected.
