Crisfield Woman Brings Stun Gun To Wicomico Regional Airport

Posted: Updated:

WICOMICO CO., Md. - The Wicomico County Sheriff's Office responded to what could have been a scary situation at the Wicomico Regional Airport this weekend.

A Crisfield woman ticketed to fly to Philadelphia was reportedly stopped at checkpoint, after a stun gun was detected in her carry-on bag. The Sheriff's Department says they removed the stun gun for investigation, causing her to miss her flight. However, she was not criminally charged, and was permitted to leave the airport with the weapon.

The Transportation Security Administration says weapons, including realistic replica firearms, are not permitted in carry-on bags, but can be transported in checked bags if they are unloaded, properly packed and declared to the airline. Passengers who bring firearms to the checkpoint are reportedly subject to possible criminal charges from law enforcement and civil penalties from TSA.
