Newark Liberty #9 and Atlantic City #10 Airports Make TSA’s Top 10 List of Most Unusual Items Found Nationwide at Checkpoints

January 10, 2022

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) and Atlantic City Internation Airport (ACY) made it into the Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) list of Top 10 List of most unusual items found nationwide at security checkpoints in 2021. TSA released the list in an on-line video it posted on the agency’s Twitter account.

What was the item from the airport that ranked as #9 on the Top 10 List? Read on . . .

On August 21, 2021, the TSA officers at EWR detected a long-barreled revolver with a wooden grip that looked very much like an antique pistol. It was the type of handgun that you might have seen pulled during one of several movie shootouts in “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” the “Gunfight at the O.K. Corral” or “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.” 

Of course, guns are not permitted to be carried through an airport security checkpoint.

#10 on the list was bullets found in deodorant at Atlantic City Internation Airport (ACY).
