Weird things found at airports

Poor airport security. They have to put up with a lot! They probably have a bit of a laugh at other people’s expense sometimes though.

Here’s a few of the weird and wonderful things found by airport security.

1. A dead seal’s head.


Found in luggage in the USA in 2004 was…. a seal’s head.

A customs official was quoted as saying  ”He indicated that he was aware that he needed a permit and that he didn’t have a permit.”

3. Marijuana Filled Grenades

If you are going to smuggle drugs through an airport, why on earth would you hide them in a replica grenade? Well, that’s exactly what some dumbasses did in Tuscon! Source >> http://blog.tsa.gov/2012/10/tsa-week-in-review-42-firearms.html

4. 451 Turtles in a Suitcase

This would be a great name for a band or even a song. The reality is though, a passenger on a flight from Bangladesh to Bangkok tried to smuggle in 451 live turtles. Crazy mo-fo. Source >> https://www.reuters.com/article/us-thailand-turtles-idUSTRE75119R20110602

5. Snakes in a Bra

A far as creative smuggling attempts go, trying to smuggle 75 snakes in a bra is a pretty brave attempt! A woman was arrested in Stockholm, Sweden when suspicion was aroused by the woman repeatedly scratching her chest. Well, wouldn’t you?

Actually, we think that Snakes in a Bra would be a great name for a film! A lot better than that awful snakes on a plane film, that’s for sure!
