A Florida man was arrested on charges of making a false bomb threat that prompted a five-hour evacuation at Jacksonville International Airport, jail records showed on Wednesday.

Zeljko Causevic, 39, of Jacksonville, was jailed on charges of making a false report about a bomb and the manufacture or possession of a hoax bomb.

Public records show a Jacksonville man with that name was licensed by the U.S. Department of Transportation as a cargo shipper.

NBC News reported that two arrests had been made, but Reuters could not immediately confirm a second one.

The Jacksonville airport was evacuated for five hours on Tuesday night after two suspicious packages were found, one in a terminal and one in a parking garage.

One contained a device that was removed by a bomb squad and “rendered safe,” a spokesman for the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office said Tuesday night, without giving additional details.

The airport reopened Tuesday night, but traffic was still disrupted on Wednesday morning.
