PATCO passengers face random searches
LINDENWOLD, N.J. - September 8, 2010 -- Commuters who ride PATCO trains between southern New Jersey and Philadelphia should expect more random searches.
Transportation Security Administration screeners checked 663 bags randomly selected from the morning rush at the Lindenwold station Tuesday.
Delaware River Port Authority Police Chief David McClintock told The Courier Post of Cherry Hill screeners were looking for improvised explosive devices and weapons.
The chief says a crack pipe was the only item confiscated.
A special Delaware River Port Authority police unit plans to conduct surprise searches at various PATCO stations.
