Inert grenades found at Honolulu International Airport

HONOLULU -

The Transportation Security administration says a passenger tried to bring a grenade that was inert, a replica or a novelty grenade in checked baggage this week at the Honolulu International Airport.

The inert grenade was one of six discovered at airports across the nation this week.

The TSA says agents continue to find inert hand grenades and other weaponry on a weekly basis.

TSA officials say that if an item looks like a realistic bomb, grenade, mine, or other weaponry, it is prohibited -- real or not.

When these items are found at a check point or in checked baggage, they can cause significant delays in screening.
