The south gate at Offutt Air Force Base in Bellevue was briefly closed to traffic Wednesday morning after police were called to check a delivery truck.

A K-9 military dog alerted its handler to the possibility of explosives in the vehicle around 4:15 a.m. Following a search by OPD's Explosive Ordinance Disposal Unit, no explosives were found and the truck was cleared to enter.

The gate reopened around 6:30 a.m.
