Police: New York man was behind CLE Airport security scare

Police say a New York man was behind the scare at Cleveland Hopkins Airport on Tuesday

Cleveland police now say a New York man was behind the security scare at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport yesterday.

Police say Edward Maher, seen here in a mugshot for a previous offense, left a guitar case near a Delta Airlines ticket counter--which led to a lockdown of the airport for several hours.

Maher later told police he was flying to New York, but couldn't afford to pay the fees for his case so he left it behind.

Maher has no outstanding warrants and was allowed to fly to Syracuse, but his guitar stayed in Cleveland for evidence.

At this time, he hasn't been charged.
