Adams County woman cited for stun gun at BWI

stun gun

An Adams County woman was cited by police after she was caught trying to bring a stun gun on an airplane on New Year’s Day.

A Transportation Security Administration (TSA) officer at BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport who was staffing the checkpoint X-ray machine spotted the pink stun gun in the woman’s carry-on bag.  The stun gun was designed to look like a smart phone with a fake keypad and fake screen. The device had two buttons in the location where the call and on/off buttons are typically located on a smartphone—one was marked “LIGHT” and the other button was marked “STUN.”

TSA said it contacted the Maryland Transportation Authority police who responded, confiscated the device, and cited the woman on a state weapons charge.

Her name is not being released.

She was disarmed and cited, then permitted to catch her flight to Los Angeles.

    So why is this news? you're making it sound like she had one disguised as a cell phone so she could use it for terrorist activities.

    Stun guns are made to look like cell phones so you can carry them with out the attacker knowing you have one… It would be silly to carry one that they know to disarm you of before raping you. So if the story is that it was designed to look like a cell phone ……….WHO CARES.

    LATE BREAKING NEWS FROM FOX: Lady forgets she has stungun in purse. TSA reminds her and cites her for her mistake.
