Weirdest Things Found By Airport Security

However, some people fail to grasp just how serious this is. We have made a list of the craziest, weirdest things people tried to smuggle through borders which were caught by the airport security.

10. Dead snakes


In 2007, a man coming from South Korea checked in a suitcase at the Atlanta International Airport. It was filled with jars and bottles stuffed with dead, venomous snakes. We still don’t know what use these dead creatures would be put to.

9. Cannonball


An innocent diver, while exploring an 18th-century shipwreck, discovered an old cannonball. He decided to check it in with his luggage. Security control labeled it to be dangerous and possibly explosive. They had to evacuate nearly 300 passengers to ensure their safety.

8. Body of iPhones


This incident occurred in China in 2014. The customs police caught a Hong Kong man with 94 iPhones strapped to his body. This obviously set off the metal detector which alerted the security. His intention was to sell them at a high price.
