Candle with marijuana inside was ‘Secret Santa’ gift from co-worker, traveler tells TSA
A traveler was pulled to the side during an airport security screening when their candle raised some red flags, according to federal authorities. The Transportation Security Administration officers at Boston Logan International Airport said they had “noticed something a bit strange about this candle.” Troopers with Massachusetts State Police were called to investigate the candle on Wednesday, Jan. 11, according to a tweet from Dan Velez, a spokesperson for TSA New England. Investigators confirmed this wasn’t an ordinary candle with only typical candle wax. It also contained marijuana, officials said. The 53-year-old man told authorities the candle was a “Secret Santa” gift from one of his co-workers, according to the post.
