Sex toys in checked luggage caused the evacuation of Terminal D at Berlin Schönefeld Airport on Tuesday.

“Due to police investigation concerning a piece of baggage, check-in at Terminal D is currently restricted,” the airport said on Twitter.

The news was first reported by the Berliner Morgenpost.

The incident was the third evacuation of a German airport terminal in ten days, and the second on Tuesday, when a portion of Frankfurt Airport was shut down after passengers who had tested positive for explosives at the security checkpoint were inadvertently allowed to continue into the secure area of the terminal.

Once the owner of the luggage in question – a 31-year-old male who had brought a vibrator for his girlfriend – was located, the terminal reopened to passenger traffic.

“Police Investigation is over,” the airport said later in the day, also on Twitter. “Terminal D reopened. However, further impairments in passenger handling possible.”

Berlin Schönefeld was the main airport of the former German Democratic Republic.  Today it is the smaller of two airports in the capital city of Berlin and is used primarily by low-cost carriers such as EasyJet, Germania, and Ryanair.

A third airport, Tempelhof, was closed in 2008.
