Cattle Prod Found In BWI Passenger’s Carry-On

LINTHICUM, Md. (AP) — A Delaware man has been cited with stashing a compact cattle prod in his carry-on luggage at BWI.

The Transportation Security Administration says checkpoint officers at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport discovered the prod in the carry-on luggage of a passenger bound for Albany, N.Y., on Tuesday. TSA spokesman Kawika Riley says the passenger surrendered the weapon.

Maryland Transportation Authority police cited Richard Perrucci, 61,of Milton, Del., with carrying an unauthorized weapon prohibited in the airport. Sgt. Kirk Perez says Perrucci was able to board his flight.

Perez says it’s not unusual to find weapons in passengers’ carry-on luggage.

    It never surprises me to discover the things that are found in their carry on luggage.

    People seem to be unable to use common sense, I guess they have to have something to use it. Most children know you can’t carry a weapon in a piece of carry on luggage.

      Hi Kit, Thanks for the heads up on pkicang for New Zealand. I think we will have some wetness :- ).I use the vest extensively; don’t even wait on the weight issue. I also have the cameras in my bag ready with their straps so that if tagged as overweight, out come the two bodies and I attach the 300 f/2.8 to one which I carry, and the 70-200 to the other for Jackie to carry. The moment we are on the plane they go back into the bag!!Congrats on the award fantastic image and looking forward to 18 days of learning how to .

    What I do (depending on the aporirt) is check my baggage in then go through security and straight to the toilet where I load all the heavy stuff from my carry-on onto my person. Then I go through the rest of the gauntlet until I am right at my gate. If I can, I then slip into the toilet again and unload or if not I hold it until the plane is called, then wait until I am the very last person to go through and at the back of the We all stood up for ages and then pushed and shoved to get to the front of the queue and now we are all standing in the tunnel because the Business Class people AT THE FRONT OF THE PLANE and WHO GET TO BOARD FIRST are still loading their bags into the overhead compartment line . I move everything back into the bag so I can be comfortable on the plane. No one in front of me is looking back, we are no where near the plane yet so they can’t see me and the people that scanned my ticket are wishing Mr Jones would stop whatever he is doing and get to the plane now because the flight is about to close and they have things that they should be doing.

    Its like you read my mind! You appear to understand a lot about this, like you wrote the e-book in it or something. I feel that you can do with a few p.c. to drive the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is excellent blog. A great read. I will certainly be back.
