A man flying through Baltimore-Washington International Airport was found with a missile launcher in his checked baggage, Washington's reports. And no, that's not allowed.
First, the good news: the device was not live. The bad news, for the traveler anyway, was that it was confiscated, tested for explosive residue, then sent to the state fire marshal to be disposed of.
When the device turned up on the security agency's X-ray machines, officers were dispatched to track down the traveler and ask him some questions. As it turns out, it was all rather innocent - mostly. The man, identified only as a male traveler from Jacksonville, Texas, said he was an active-duty military member returning from Kuwait. He said he wanted to keep the device as a souvenir.
TSA spokesperson Lisa Farbstein suggested that perhaps the traveler could have brought back some other souvenir.
"Perhaps he should have picked up a keychain instead!"
