ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - A baggage room at the Greater Rochester International Airport was temporarily evacuated after officers spotted what looked like two grenades in a suitcase.
It turned out they were just replicas.
The Transportation Security Administration says they were found Wednesday morning at the airport. TSA officers stopped an Atlanta-bound passenger after detecting the realistic-looking fakes in his checked luggage.
Explosives experts were called and ordered the baggage room evacuated until they determined there was no danger.
The passenger voluntarily surrendered the fake grenades and the flight went on as planned.
A TSA spokeswoman said Thursday it wasn't known why he had the replicas with him.
