(KTVI) – TSA screeners in Rhode Island made a disturbing discovery this week. What they found inside some stuffed animals was definitely not child’s play.
Officers uncovered a disassembled .40 caliber hand gun and ammunition stuffed inside three stuffed animals. The toys were inside a four-year-old’s carry-on. The child was traveling with his father.
Dad claims he had no idea the gun parts were there and after interviewing him, authorities believe him. Investigators are now looking into whether the man’s wife was involved and called the incident a result of “a domestic dispute.”
The father and son were eventually allowed to continue their flight to Detroit.
