Dulles customs agents find the odd and dangerous
At Dulles International Airport, Customs and Border Protection can check the bags of 10,000 to 13,000 a day and often find the darnedest things.
Customs and Border Protection Officer Rebecca Rhinehart questions a passenger about an item found in his suitcase at Washington Dulles International Airport on Thursday, Jan. 19, 2012. CBP throws away on average 240 pounds of seized goods daily. The items must be incinerated at 1,600 degrees for four hours. This line of defense protects America from exposure to illnesses and epidemics brought on by foodstuffs, insects and the like from other countries. (Barbara L. Salisbury/The Washington Times)
