MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Police at Minneapolis-St. Paul International

Airport are investigating a report of a suspicious person at a

Delta Air Lines building.

Airport officials say the man entered the building about 9 p.m.

Tuesday and was confronted by a Delta employee who asked to see his

badge. The man responded by holding out a stuffed animal and

saying, "This is all you need to see." Then he fled.

Airport police and Delta security officials searched for the man

in and around the building, but did not find him. Police stepped up

patrols around the building and the airfield, and they remained in

place Tuesday.

Airport spokesman Patrick Hogan says police don't believe the

man got access to an adjoining maintenance hangar, but they brought

in bomb-sniffing dogs to check planes before they left the hangar.

They found no explosives.

Hogan says the incident had no effect on airport operations.
