Transportation Security Administration scrutinized about grenades in airports: 2 noncombustible grenades found in checked bag at Sunport

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. —Action 7 News talked to federal authorities to see if they're taking 10 noncombustible grenades found inside airports across the country as more than several mistakes.

Of the 10 grenades, the officials with the Transportation Security Administration said two were found inside a checked bag in the Sunport.

TSA officials also said they take the discoveries very seriously and are always trying to find ways to make sure terrorists aren't trying to prepare for their next attack.

"We test our own employees; we test the system. We're constantly looking for ways to improve and to make sure terrorists don't game the system," TSA representative Luis Casanova said.

Other noncombustible grenades were found in Salt Lake City, Tampa, Miami, Dallas and several other cities last week.
