ORLANDO, Fla. — What seemed like just a kid's toy ended up being much more at the Orlando International Airport.

TSA agents said they found two high-capacity magazines hidden inside a baby’s toy this month. TSA said the toy and the box were made to look like it had been factory sealed.

TSA agents called for a bag check on the toy after it went through the X-ray screening. Police were called to the airport and took the magazines.

TSA reported there were 205 firearms found in carry-on bags between Nov. 4 and Nov. 17. Agents said they found 176 of those firearms loaded and 72 even had a round in the chamber.

Bringing firearms to the security checkpoint could get you arrested or cost you up to a $13,333 penalty. TSA said fire arms should be transported in a hard-sided container and transported as checked baggage only. You can read more about flying with firearms here.
