TSA Agents Find Gun-Shaped Toilet Paper Holder at New Jersey Airport

TSA agents believed they had discovered a gun in a passenger’s carry-on at Newark Liberty Airport in New Jersey.

But this item was meant to hold toilet paper, not bullets.

Upon closer inspection last week, TSA agents found a gun-shaped toilet paper holder, the agency said in a news release.

TSA prevents travelers from boarding planes with real or replica firearms. So the traveler was given a choice: Surrender the gun or place it in a checked bag.

The traveler forfeited it to the TSA.

Car with Strange Warning about Russia Was Abandoned in Front of Pittsburgh’s FBI Office

FBI agents in Pittsburgh were in for a surprise last week when someone abandoned a car tagged with a strange message at an entrance gate to the bureau’s office on the city’s south side.

Along the side of the car was a stencil-painted message: “RUSSIA PLANTS MICRORADIO DEVICES IN PPLS EARS & CONTROLS THEM USING A SOUND SIMILAR TO A DOG WHISTLE. SUBLIMINAL HYPNOSIS.”

A bomb squad checked the car for explosives Thursday morning, and agents worked with Pittsburgh’s local police to investigate, KIRO-7 reported.

By Friday, the person who parked the car outside the East Carson Street office was found.

“He voluntarily turned himself in to the FBI this morning and appears to be suffering from an unknown mental illness,” an FBI spokesperson said in a statement.
