Die Beamten der Transportation Security Administration ziehen Waffen und sogar Sprengkörper aus dem Verkehr. Auf Instagram veröffentlicht die TSA die kuriosesten Fundstücke
Die US-Behörde Transportation Security Administration (TSA) führt seit den Anschlägen vom 11. September an Bahnstationen, Häfen und insbesondere an Flughäfen umfassende Sicherheitskontrollen durch. Welche gefährlichen Sachen sie bei Passagieren finden, posten die Beamten auf dem TSA-Instagram-Account. Von Messern bis Handgranaten ist alles dabei. (red, 11.10.2016)
TSA #GoodCatch - These #brassknuckles were discovered in a carry-on bag at the #NewYork (JFK) International Airport. Martial arts and self defense weapons are prohibited from carry-on bags, but may be transported in checked baggage. However, you should familiarize yourself with local laws, as the possession of brass knuckles is illegal in some states, including New York. If one of our officers discovers an item that may violate the law, TSA refers the matter to law enforcement. Law enforcement officials will determine if further action is appropriate.
#TSATravelTips - If an item looks like a real bomb, grenade, mine, etc., it is prohibited. When these items are found at a checkpoint or in checked baggage, they can cause significant delays because the explosives detection professionals must respond to resolve the alarm. Even if they are novelty items, you are prohibited from bringing them on board the aircraft. The inert/novelty grenades were discovered this week in carry-on bags at Phoenix–Mesa Gateway (IWA) and Dayton (DAY). The realistic replica stick of dynamite was discovered in checked baggage at Honolulu (HNL). #TSAGoodCatch
#TSAGoodCatch - Pictured here are 9 of the 12 cans of bear mace that were discovered this week in carry-on bags around the nation. Eight were discovered at Anchorage (ANC), two at Billings (BIL) and the remainder at Oakland (OAK) and Seattle (SEA). Bear repellent is prohibited in the cabin of an aircraft. You can pack bear repellent in your checked bag if the volume is less than four ounces and if it has less than a two percent active ingredient of either CS or CN. Most bear repellents exceed these limitations.
#TSAGoodCatch - This inert rocket propelled grenade (RPG) was discovered last week in a carry-on bag at the Raleigh–Durham International Airport (RDU). If an item looks like a real bomb, grenade, mine, etc., it is prohibited. When these items are found at a checkpoint or in checked baggage, they can cause significant delays because the explosives detection professionals must respond to resolve the alarm. Even if they are novelty items, you are prohibited from bringing them on board the aircraft.
