Newark, New Jersey -
The TSA allowed a woman, who was found to have three Claymore land mines in her luggage, to fly. The woman from New Jersey was passing through security at Newark Liberty International's Terminal C when the land mines were discovered.
She explained to TSA agents that they were for work and she was bringing them along for a demonstration. Two of the land mines were packed with shrapnel. Apparently that explanation was good enough for TSA and they let her continue on to her flight to San Francisco, though, without the landmines, but more importantly, she was not arrested.
Lessons Learned Here? Apparently land mines are far more accepted in today's culture than previously thought, and.... If it's work related, it's ok to carry land mines around.
