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

badge. The man responded by holding out a stuffed animal and
saying, "This is all you need to see." Then he fled.

in and around the building, but did not find him. Police stepped up
patrols around the building and the airfield, and they remained in
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.
