Young love leads to airport security problems

Hand gun found in teddy bear that was allegedly a gift

JULY 17--Forget about that 250-pound black bear that attacked two Colorado campers this week. This is America's most dangerous ursine. Last Friday, screeners at Orlando International Airport found a loaded .22-caliber Derringer concealed inside a teddy bear carried by a 10-year-old Ohio boy. According to the kid, he was given the bear by a young girl he had met while vacationing--and was unaware that the gat was stashed in the bear's belly. No charges have been brought against the boy or his parents, though the bear remains in federal custody. The piece, which had been reported stolen from a Barstow, California home seven years ago, was jammed in the bear through a small hole near the animal's furry behind. These two photos were provided to TSG by the Transportation Security Administration, which helpfully named the below image "Teddy Bear Rearview.jpg." (1 page)
