(KSL News) A security breach at JFK Airport in New York City forced passengers landing in Salt Lake City to get extra security checks.

Five flights, including one at Salt Lake International, were evacuated and screened yesterday as authorities tried to find the man who breached security.

The Transportation Security Administration says NO arrests have been made.

The flights were singled out because they shut their doors and began takeoff just after the breach was announced.
