A Great Falls, Va. man tried to take a live smoke grenade on board an airplane Sunday, police say.

Transportation Security Administration officers found the grenade hidden under the inner lining of the man's bag at Washington Dulles International Airport.

The grenade was confiscated and the man was allowed to continue his flight to Denver. He was not charged.

Two days earlier, police say a passenger tried to take a stun gun on board an airplane at Dulles. The TSA confiscated the stun gun and the man continued on his flight to Charlotte. He was not charged.
