State Police report troopers patrolling the lower level of Terminal C around 1 p.m. were approached by concerned citizens who'd just spotted a man drive up to a curbside trash can, put two containers in it and then drive away.

The State Police continue to investigate the incident, but after speaking with the suspect do not believe there was any malicious or criminal intent, or that there was ever any threat to public safety.
