CHICAGO — Chicago cops stopped and searched a CTA Blue Line "L" train in the Loop Tuesday morning after reports that a passenger went on a rant and threatened others.
A source said the passenger reportedly said he had a bomb.
But when the police stopped the train at the Monroe station at about 8:30 p.m., the man was gone and there was no sign of a threat.
Customers experienced delays at the station after the incident.
Officer Michael Sullivan, a Chicago police spokesman, confirmed that police did not find a passenger who might have caused a disturbance. Police said the call was believed to be unfounded.
