INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — A vest left by a federal security officer at the Indianapolis International Airport caused airport police to close one concourse and a security checkpoint Wednesday morning because of a suspected bomb threat, airport and Transportation Security Administration officials said.

The vest containing inert training materials was mistakenly left by the officer after overnight training, a TSA statement read.

The package contained several imitation explosives as well as wires and a battery, according to a police report.
