A Man Is Accused of Attempting to Fly with Rifles, Handguns, and Ammunition in His Luggage

Allegedly, a man tried to board an aircraft from New Jersey to Florida while armed with fake police IDs, guns, and bulletproof gear.

U.S. Attorney Phillip Sellinger stated that agents discovered ammunition and a ballistic vest labelled “Deputy Marshal” during normal inspection of checked luggage.

Based on what was found, agents reportedly went through the rest of Seretse Clouden’s bags. Sellinger claims that agents uncovered a variety of weapons, including rifles, handguns, a taser, and a spring-loaded knife.

They said that Clouden’s “United States Marshal” credentials, complete with his photo and name, were also in the bag. Sellinger stated that the United States Marshals Service was called and confirmed that Clouden is not, and has never been, an employee of the service.

In a court document, the Department of Justice said that Clouden had been convicted of unauthorised possession of a weapon in 2016.

Due to the firearms and ammunition accusations, Clouden may spend up to 15 years in prison, and the forgery charge could add another five.
Travelers may bring unloaded firearms on board, but they must be stored in checked luggage.

The TSA recommends declaring the firearm with the airline representative at the check-in desk.
