The Transportation Security Administration announced that two inert grenades were discovered in luggage at Dwight D. Eisenhower Airport in Wichita. The grenades were found on Sep. 27th, one in a carry-on bag the other in a checked bag. 

According to the TSA, 91 firearms were found in carry-on bags around the country in the last week of September. They are reminding travelers that real, inert, or anything resembling an explosive is prohibited in carry-on and checked bags. Discovery of such an item could lead to a complete shutdown or evacuation.
