Man, 40, is in FBI custody after TSA found an explosive device hidden in the lining of his checked bag as it was being loaded onto an Allegiant flight from Pennsylvania to Florida
Mark Muffley, 40, faces charges of possession of an explosive at an airport and possessing/attempting to place an explosive on an aircraft
The explosive was concealed in a checked piece of luggage and contained multiple fuses - it triggered an alarm before being loaded onto the plane
Muffley was paged over the airport's public system, left the airport, but was arrested at his home in Lansford later that same day


A 40-year-old Pennsylvania man has been taken into FBI custody after trying to smuggle an explosive device onto an Allegiant flight.

Officials say that the device was concealed inside a checked piece of luggage at Lehigh Valley International Airport and contained multiple fuses, ABC News reported.

Mark Muffley, of Lansford Pennsylvania, was about to take an Allegiant flight from eastern Pennsylvania to Sanford, Florida.

The bag triggered an alarm before being loaded onto the plane, and the TSA found a 'circular compound' hidden in the lining of the baggage, the FBI said.

Once found, Muffley was paged over the airport's public system to come to the security desk, minutes later, security cameras showed him leaving the airport.

Police, the FBI and bomb experts responded to the airport. An airport spokesperson telling WFMZ that part of the main terminal was closed around 11.15 am while authorities investigated a 'suspicious package.'

The device hidden in the bag's lining was a circular compound, about three inches in diameter.

Its said to have contained a 'granular type of powder concealed' in wax paper and plastic wrap, a criminal complaint stated.

'This granular type of powder is consistent with a commercial grade firework,' the complaint said.

There were also two fuses attached, one of which appeared to be part of the original manufacturing and is used to ignite explosives quickly.

The other fuse was added later, and burns slower than a quick fuse, officials said adding that the powders could ignite from heat and friction posing a 'significant risk' to the plane and passengers.
Investigators also found in the suitcase a can of butane, a lighter, a pipe with white powder residue, a wireless drill and two GFCI outlets taped together.

Death of a thousand cuts...

How do you think unconventional guerrilla type warfare is waged against a vastly superior force? Attack them in ways they don't even know or believe they're being attacked.

Oh wait trains just derail themselves regularly, facilities spontaneously combust and airplanes can just randomly explode at any given time. How many frivolous calls are being put out to the police, paramedics or fire depts to overwhelmed the systems? Used to you could call a non-emergency number to get the police around here, 911 calls only and they go through sometimes.

Sam(antha?) Brinton is now under investigation by the FBI for wearing clothing that was not supposed to be seen by the public yet. It was to be unveiled at a special Fashion Show in Houston.

We're dealing with genius level intellect here. Well, as far as rocks go. Who the hell goes back home after their bomb is found at the airport? Virtually no entertainment value - the least he could have done is lead a merry manhunt.
