It would have been a shocking discovery no matter who was found trying to carry the potential weapons onto airplanes at two Florida airports.

But the TSA was especially surprised when they found a 12-year-old with a grenade inside a carry-on at Jacksonville International Airport earlier this week, Bay News 9 reports. 

Then on Wednesday, security found a 16-year-old with a hatchet at Orlando International Airport.

“Hatchets, knives, grenades and guns are not permitted in your carry-on bags,” said TSA spokeswoman Sari Koshetz.

Authorities later determined that the grenade was “inert and not dangerous,” Bay News 9 wrote.

A man who attacked an NYPD officer last month with a hatchet was inspired by terrorists and black separatism, NBC4 New York reports.

“There is no doubt it was terrorism,” Comey said during a news conference at the Newark FBI offices.

Comey said the suspect, Zale Thompson, was politically motivated and he appears to have drawn inspiration from foreign terrorist sources like ISIL (ISIS), but there is also evidence he was focused on black separatist ideology.”

Comey said Thompson reviewed jihadist propaganda and ISIL beheading videos online.

“There is no doubt that played a role,” Comey said.

Thompson is accused of attacking NYPD rookie Officer Kenneth Healy while he was posing for a picture. Healy spent time in the hospital and rehabilitation before being sent home to recover.
