A scary discovery for airport screeners in Illinois.

A piece of luggage going through security contained what looked like a bomb.

Authorities evacuated Peoria International Airport for about three hours while they investigated.

They say the device was made up of two bottles filled with liquid, a timer, an aerosol can and some wires and sticks labeled dynamite.

The sticks were found to be dog toys.

Officers arrested the woman who brought the luggage. She told them the device was for training employees at abortion clinics.
