A St. Augustine man was stopped by officials Tuesday after trying to board a flight from Pennsylvania to the Orlando Sanford International Airport with a fake grenade and a real, unassembled rocket-propelled launcher.
The man's bag set off an alarm at the Lehigh Valley International Airport as it went through the Transportation Security Administration's baggage security system, according to a TSA press release.
.@TSA officers detected the unassembled parts of a military rocket propelled grenade launcher in a man's checked bag at @FLYLVIA yesterday. When assembled, the launcher was determined to be non-functioning and the grenade an inert replica. (Thank goodness!) pic.twitter.com/hrBt5ECdpJ— TSAmedia_LisaF (@TSAmedia_LisaF) March 5, 2019
