“Officers called a bag check on the toy after undergoing X-ray screening. The toy and box were made to appear to be factory sealed,” the post explained.

Local law enforcement officials responded to the scene and confiscated the magazines.

When reached for comment, Sari Koshetz, Florida's regional spokesperson for the TSA, offered a statement on the weird find.

“The discovery is a testament to the fact that our officers are highly trained to find possible threats wherever they may be hidden," Koshetz said. "This case also elucidates the reason why the TSA must and does screen everything that is heading for the aircraft in order to keep you safe every day."
