ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Authorities say a vibrating device that claims to reduce wrinkles as it rolls over a person’s face forced a Southwest Airlines flight to evacuate in New Mexico.

Albuquerque Aviation Police told news station KOB-TV that passengers were ordered off the plane Monday after the anti-aging skin roller was discovered in the back of a seat.

Authorities said the flight crew moved the item to the galley, and police searched the plane.

The item was later identified as a Bar 24K Golden Anti-Aging Skin Roller and was taken to the airport’s lost and found.

Passengers were required to go through security again before they were allowed to board another flight.

No other suspicious items were found, and no arrests were made.
