The Transportation Security Administration said it's stopped 2,800 pounds of prohibited items from getting through the security checkpoint at Jacksonville International Airport.
People have packed bizarre and even potentially dangerous items in their carry-on bags, including brass knuckles, toy guns and a grenade.
Even though it didn’t have explosives, it could have caused an evacuation at the checkpoint and a lot of angry passengers who may have missed their flights.
Someone actually tried to get a grenade through the checkpoint at JIA. What the what?! It didn’t have explosives but it can cause an evacuation. At 5:55, I’ll show you all the bizarre and potentially dangerous items people try to fly with @ActionNewsJax @WOKVNews pic.twitter.com/qGVKLOwgGD— Lorena Inclán (@LorenaANjax) March 14, 2018
TSA does hold the nonprohibited items at the airport for about 30 days, to allow passengers to recover them.
