TSA finds cannon barrel in Maui traveler's luggage

The Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) An airline passenger flying out of Maui checked in with a weapon not often seen in baggage the barrel of a cannon.

Transportation Security Administration officials confirm they spotted the cannon barrel last week in the checked luggage of a passenger at Kahului (kah-hoo-LOO'-ee) Airport.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser (http://bit.ly/1waHy8G ) reports the cannon barrel was found Oct. 20 in the checked bag of a United Airlines passenger traveling to San Francisco on a late evening flight.

The cannon wasn't loaded.

The TSA says the passenger was cleared to fly but the airline made separate arrangements for transporting the cannon barrel.
