Firearm Parts Found On Flight From Boston

MIAMI (AP) — The FBI says a 37-year-old man has been arrested after security found firearm parts in his bag at Miami International Airport.

Miami-Dade police say something exploded inside the bag while it was on the tarmac on Tuesday. Detective Edna Hernandez said a preliminary investigation suggested it was an aerosol can.

The Transportation Security Administration says security then found firearms parts in the checked baggage that arrived on an American Airlines flight from Boston. No one was injured.

No information on the man’s name or charges was immediately available.
