LAX failed to spot gun in hand luggage

Fri Apr 21, 2017 8:40 am

Glad to see the top notch TSA security is keeping American skies safe. :duck:


An off-duty policewoman flew from Los Angeles international airport (LAX) to Taiwan with a gun in her hand luggage.

The weapon was not detected during security screening and Noell Grant only realised she was carrying it as she changed planes in Taipei.

She informed the local authorities and she has been barred from leaving Taiwan until the matter is resolved.

US federal officials have admitted security procedures were not properly followed at LAX.
