A security breach caused John Wayne Airport to be evacuated Friday evening and incoming flights held on runways.

Reports from the scene suggested the evacuation was the result of a stolen vehicle reported in the area and a police search for a suspect, though authorities could not immediately confirm the nature of the breach.

The breach was reported just before 7:25 p.m., according to a tweet from the airport.
