The 20 Craziest Posts From The TSA Instagram

Sophie Forbes
April 27, 2015


If you have ever stood in line at airport security, you will know that no matter how many signs they post, or how curtly they shout at you, there is always that one person who fails to follow the directions about what you can and can not pack into your carry-on bag.

Just last month a man was cited when officers discovered a loaded gun in his toiletry bag as he was passing through security at Ronald Reagan Airport in Washington, D.C. It doesn't take a genius to know that as a regular passenger, you can't bring a deadly weapon on board. But flying in the face of common sense — and despite the fact that it could be against the law or potentially lead to criminal charges and huge fines — people attempt to take crazy things on planes all the time. Firearms and ammunition are just the tip of the iceberg.

In fact, there are so many scary and strange items, the people a the TSA (Transportation Security Administration) have decided to show the world, via Instagram, the insane stuff people try to smuggle through the scanners, whether intentional or not. Here are our top 20 things discovered by the TSA.
Republic Act 8485 (Animal Welfare Act of 1998, Philippines), as amended and strengthened by House  Bill 6893 of 2013--- violation means a maximum of P250,000 fine with a corresponding three-year jail term and a minimum of P30,000 fine and six months imprisonment

1. Hand grenade

This scary looking grenade was found in a carry-on bag at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport. Thank goodness it was inert — which, by the way, doesn't matter to TSA. No bueno.

2. Smoke bomb

A live, purple smoke grenade, usually used by the military, was discovered inside a checked bag at Las Vegas McCarran International Airport last month. This passenger will just have to buy his smoke grenade when he gets to his destination.

3. Throwing knives

These scary looking blades were inside a carry on bag at Chicago O’Hare International. The more frightening thing? They can be carried in checked baggage.

4. Six-bladed throwing star

Someone at Los Angeles International Airport attempted to take this six-blade throwing star through airport security in July 2012.

5. Live eels

It's not quite snakes on a plane, but these live eels were hidden inside a checked bag leaving Miami International Airport in 2012. The owner also attempted to smuggle 163 tropical fish and 22 invertebrates out of the country.

6. Propane tanks

These three full and highly flammable propane tanks were inside someone’s carry on bag going through a TSA checkpoint at Oakland International Airport. Perhaps there was a grill the person's checked bag.

7. Avalanche charge

This homemade avalanche charge, used for setting off an avalanche, was found inside a carry-on bag at Anchorage International Airport. The TSA was not amused, and the passenger was arrested.

9. Sickle

This sickle was found in a carry on at Newark International Airport last year. We are assuming the offending passenger was not the Grim Reaper.

10. Suicide bomber vest

Discovered in March 2013 inside a checked bag at the Indianapolis International Airport, luckily this vest was just a dummy used as a training aid that belonged to an explosives trainer.

11. Anti-tank weapon

This AT4 anti-tank weapon was hidden in a checked bag at Arnold Palmer Regional Airport in Pennsylvania in 2012. It was expended, but still prohibited.

12. Snakes

This passenger was no Samuel L. Jackson (who starred in Snakes on a Plane), but he had seven of these small, very much alive slithery fellas stuffed into nylon stockings and shoved down his pants as he attempted to board a flight in Miami in August 2011. We really hope the TSA agent asked, "Are those snakes in your pants, or are you just happy to see me?"

13. Meat cleaver

The owner of this cleaver tried to carry it on a flight from Newark International. No dice. If you must cut some meat, you will have to do it at your final destination — checking it is just fine.
Republic Act 8485 (Animal Welfare Act of 1998, Philippines), as amended and strengthened by House  Bill 6893 of 2013--- violation means a maximum of P250,000 fine with a corresponding three-year jail term and a minimum of P30,000 fine and six months imprisonment

14. Leather glove with finger spikes

Who knew Wolverine flew commercial? Maybe the owner of this crazy looking glove was just a massive X-Men fan. Whatever the case, this gnarly looking device was confiscated at Birmingham-Shuttlesworth Airport in February 2013.
Republic Act 8485 (Animal Welfare Act of 1998, Philippines), as amended and strengthened by House  Bill 6893 of 2013--- violation means a maximum of P250,000 fine with a corresponding three-year jail term and a minimum of P30,000 fine and six months imprisonment

15. Cannon barrel

Isn't that heavy? Not something you see everyday, let alone in someone’s luggage, but this centuries old cannon barrel was found in a bag at Kahului Airport in Hawaii.

16.Stun gun

Is it makeup or is it a stun gun? This crafty-looking personal protection device was very cleverly disguised as a lipstick, but it was still spotted and disallowed on board a flight from Chicago Midway.
Republic Act 8485 (Animal Welfare Act of 1998, Philippines), as amended and strengthened by House  Bill 6893 of 2013--- violation means a maximum of P250,000 fine with a corresponding three-year jail term and a minimum of P30,000 fine and six months imprisonment

17. Human skull

In April 2013, TSA officers discovered these grim human remains in clay pots during a security check at Fort Lauderdale International Airport. The traveler who owned the pots had no idea about the skull inside.

18. Small dog

Back in February, this poor little chihuahua climbed into his owner’s suitcase while she was packing for a trip and she accidently locked him in. The stowaway was discovered by scanners at New York’s La Guardia Airport as the bag went through security. The pup was ok and happily reunited with his owner.

19. Signal flares

These seven high-powered signal flares and a launcher are usually used by the military. Not what you expect to find in a carry on bag at Norfolk international Airport.
Republic Act 8485 (Animal Welfare Act of 1998, Philippines), as amended and strengthened by House  Bill 6893 of 2013--- violation means a maximum of P250,000 fine with a corresponding three-year jail term and a minimum of P30,000 fine and six months imprisonment
