TSA Agent Finds Pot in Rapper’s Luggage, Just Leaves Note
I love TSA stories! -UA
A Transportation Security Administration inspector found marijuana in the checked luggage of rapper Freddie Gibbs this week, but rather than confiscate it the screener left a mildly chiding note, the musician told the world via Twitter.
“C’mon Son,” the screener wrote on the TSA “Notice of Baggage Inspection” on Wednesday, when the rapper flew to Denver to perform.
Gibbs, who has publicly expressed his love of the green bud, tweeted a photo of the notice and two bags of weed.
“The TSA found my weed and let me keep it. They just left me a note,” he told his followers, ending with “Lol.”
Gibbs has since deleted the tweet, which several folks pointed out incriminated him for illegally transporting a controlled substance and that might get the TSA agent fired.
A TSA spokesman told The Hill that airport security workers are supposed to notify police when illegal items are found.
“TSA takes all allegations of inappropriate conduct seriously and is investigating this claim,” TSA spokesman Kawika Riley said in a statement. “Should the claims be substantiated, TSA will take appropriate disciplinary steps and refer the alleged possession of an illegal substance to law enforcement.”
In October, the TSA fired another employee for leaving a note in a female passenger’s bag that contained a vibrator. It reportedly read, “Get your freak on girl.”
