Published

on

A man traveling through Baltimore-Washington International Airport this morning packed a missile launcher in his checked baggage, and he said that he wanted to bring it home from Kuwait as a souvenir.

TSA officers detected the missile launcher as a part of their regular screening process, and then tracked down the owner of the baggage for questioning, according to a press release. The passenger told TSA agents that he was active military personnel traveling home from Kuwait, and he wanted the missile launcher as a kind of keepsake.

Security agents said the item was not live, but it was still confiscated and handed over to the state fire marshal for disposal. TSA officials ultimately allowed the unidentified soldier from Texas to catch his flight home.
