WINDSOR, Ontario (AP) — The busiest border crossing between Canada and the U.S. fully reopened late Monday afternoon following a police investigation into possible explosives found in a vehicle.
Police said they detained one person in connection with the probe that for nearly seven hours significantly hampered traffic across the Ambassador Bridge linking Windsor, Ontario, with Detroit.
The Canada Border Services Agency said normal operations resumed just before 5 p.m.
Windsor police said the border agency had alerted them Monday morning after possible explosives were found in a vehicle in the secondary inspection area of the bridge complex on the Canadian side. Canada-bound traffic was suspended around 10 a.m. Police said at no time was traffic completely closed from Canada to the U.S.
