A man was stopped at an airport when officials noticed he had a missile launcher in his luggage.


The passenger, from Jacksonville in Texas, told police at Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport on Monday that he was in the military and bringing the weapon home as a “souvenir" from Kuwait.

In a statement, the US Transportation Security Administration said: “Military weapons are not permitted in checked or carry-on bags.

“Fortunately the item was not a live device. It was confiscated and handed over to the state fire marshal for safe disposal."

The man was then allowed to continue with his journey.

Believe it or not, many Twitter users were on the passenger's side.






But also, no one noticed until he got to the States?



Nothing to see here...
