A Florida man was caught at Lehigh Valley International Airport with a grenade and a grenade launcher in his suitcase, Fox News reported.
A barrel, sight, trigger, grenade and a dismembered weapon were found in the suitcase, which was examined by the officials of the Transportation Security Administration after the alarm went off during the controls.
St. Augustine resident told officers during interrogation that the gun was a duplicate and that the grenade launcher was not working. The man thought he could carry it with him when the gun in his suitcase was checked.
The Transportation Security Administration website states that duplicate weapons can be carried in checked bags. However, it is stated that “military quality” weapons are prohibited to be carried on airplanes even if they are controlled.
Passengers who violate these laws are fined up to $13,000. The Florida man will be able to continue his journey to Orlando unarmed and will not pay any fines.
The Transportation Security Administration frequently performs finding weapons in humans during flight. A person who went to Arizona last January was traveling with a hand grenade.
If you want to carry a rocket launcher in your suitcase during the flight, this does not seem possible.
