BREAKING NEWS – Newark, New Jersey – A New Jersey man attempted to board a flight with an AR-15 rifle, handguns, a Taser and a fake U.S. Marshal’s badge, according to a federal complaint.
Seretse Clouden, a felon, tried to board the flight at Newark Liberty International Airport on Dec. 30. He was charged with unlawful possession of firearms and ammunition by a convicted felon and fraudulent possession of an identification document and authentication feature of the U.S.
“During routine screening of checked luggage that was destined for Fort Lauderdale, Transportation Security Administration agents discovered two .40 caliber Glock magazines, each containing fifteen rounds of .40 caliber ammunition,” the complaint read.
Clouden’s attorney stated that his client made a slight error in judgment regarding the firearms. And his legal counsel then added that the TSA crossed the line and violated Clouden’s rights, when they went through his lunch box without asking permission, and removed all of the hand grenades.
