LINTHICUM, Md. (WJZ) — A woman was stopped by TSA officers at Baltimore Washington-Thurgood Marshall International Airport Monday morning after the officer who was staffing the checkpoint X-ray machine spotted a pink stun gun and small pocket knife in the woman’s carry-on baggage.
TSA contacted the Maryland Transportation Authority Police who responded and cited the woman on state weapons charges.
The woman, who was originally ticketed to fly to Puerto Rico, was permitted to catch her flight without the weapons.
Weapons, including stun guns and knives, are not permitted to be brought on board airplanes. Passengers who bring prohibited items to the checkpoint are subject to possible criminal charges from law enforcement and civil penalties from TSA.
