A Canadian woman was busted at John F. Kennedy International Airport Sunday morning after TSA officers discovered guns, ammunition and 58 bricks of marijuana hidden among cat litter, drink mixes and household items inside her baggage, officials said.
The illegal loot was found in the passenger’s two pieces of checked luggage. The screeners noticed the suitcases were full of cans and boxes for baby wipes, coffee, floor dusting sheets, lemonade mix, iced tea mix, cat litter and laundry tablets, according to the TSA.
Inside the product containers, they uncovered two disassembled .40 caliber handguns, 350 rounds of ammunition, four magazines for the weapons and 58 bricks of pot totaling 33 pounds.
Port Authority police were called, and the traveler, Nyesha McPherson, 24, of Scarborough, Ontario, who was ticketed to fly to the Barbados, was arrested at about 9 a.m., officials said.
McPherson has been charged with criminal possession of marijuana, criminal possession of weapon, criminal possession of a firearm, possession of high capacity magazines and possession of ammunition, according to a PA spokesman.
