La Transportation Security Administration es una agencia nacional de los Estados Unidos que se encarga de gestionar los sistemas de seguridad de aeropuertos, metros y trenes del país. Su cuenta de Instagram es la prueba de que estos lugares son una locura, informó Play Ground.
Para acercarse al público y responder inquietudes de los viajeros, la agencia abrió una cuenta en esta red social, donde comparten fotografías de los objetos que requisan a diario. Sin duda, muchos de ellos son asombrosos.
Varios de las pertenencias confiscadas serían permitidas si se facturaran en el equipaje de bodega; sin embargo, algunas personas creen que es correcto llevar armas y animales salvajes como equipaje de mano.
Estos son algunos de los objetos más extraños que han pasado por los escáneres de seguridad de varios aeropuertos estadounidenses.

With a simple unsnap and pull, this mild mannered belt becomes BELT KNIFE! Clever idea, but a bad idea to wear it through the checkpoint or pack it in your carry-on bag. Concealed weapons can lead to fines and arrest. Please pack items such as this in your checked baggage. This was discovered in a carry-on bag at the Detroit Metropolitan Airport (DTW). #TSAGoodCatch

#TBT In April of 2013, our officers discovered human skull fragments in clay pots at the #FortLauderdale International Airport (#FLL)! The fragments weren’t a security threat, but they slowed down the screening process because the screening area became a crime scene! The passengers had just purchased the clay pots and had no idea skull fragments were inside.

#TSATravelTips – It’s a bad idea to pack anything in your carry-on bag that looks like a firearm and ammo as it will slow things down for you and the travelers in line behind you. These shoes and bullet wrist bands were discovered in a carry-on bag recently at the Baltimore–Washington International Airport (BWI). While replicas are prohibited in carry-on bags, these shoes could have been packed in checked baggage.

#TBT – In August 2011 at the #Miami International Airport (#MIA), seven small snakes (stuffed in nylon stockings) were discovered in a traveler’s pants. In addition to the snakes, he also had three small turtles. The snakes and turtles were found using TSA’s Advanced Imaging Technology which allows TSA officers to find potential threat items concealed from plain sight. @USFWS officers arrived on the scene and took custody of the reptiles. The passenger was arrested and charged with violating the Lacey Act.
