  • Oregon traveler arrested after bomb part found in carry-on
    A man was arrested at the airport in Redmond, Ore., after he allegedly attempted to board a flight with a live blasting cap in his carry-on bag. A blasting cap can be used to set off a bomb but is routinely used in various construction and mining applications. Police investigating the incident said they found that while the traveler had no criminal intent, he also had no legitimate reason for having the blasting cap. KTVZ-TV (Bend, Ore.)

  • Column: TSA remains selective for PreCheck program
    Not all travelers who apply to the Transportation Security Administration’s PreCheck program are immediately allowed in, writes Carol Pucci in the Seattle Times. The TSA would not comment on precisely how many travelers are turned down, but it noted that the program is still growing. "It’s important for everyone to realize that PreCheck is really still in the pilot stage at 15 airports right now," TSA spokeswoman Lorie Dankers said.
