A US Marine was arrested today at Logan International Airport after federal airport screeners discovered a gun, bomb-making materials, and ammunition in his checked baggage, State Police and Transportation Security Administration officials said.

Corporal Justin Reed, 22, of Jacksonville, N.C., was booked on US Airways Flight 877 to Charlotte, N.C., said TSA spokeswoman Ann Davis. She said Reed had arrived on a flight from Las Vegas this morning.




What is his DEAL??? Does he think he's above the law or what?

This is horrifying! Between this and the cesar laurean case, this has not been a good year for Camp Lejeune Marines. And Jacksonville is only 45 min away from me....too close for comfort
