A 40-year-old man has been arrested in connection to an explosive device found in the check-in luggage at a Pennsylvania airport.

Mark Muffley has been indicted for placing the device in his luggage on a flight to Orlando Florida.

Transportation Security Administration (TSA), at the Lehigh Valley International airport, says this was a regular screening when spotting Muffley’s device. FBI Agents and a bomb inspector was called to examine the device. The suitcase contained a can of butane, a lighter, and toxic powders. The FBI court document stated “The black powder and flash powder are susceptible to ignite from heat and friction and posed a significant risk to the aircraft and passengers.”

Sources say Muffley is scheduled to appear in court Thursday.
