Transportation Security Administration officers allegedly allowed a rapper to keep pot they found in his luggage and let him off with just a note. Freddie Gibbs tweeted a picture earlier this week of what appears to be a bag of marijuana next to a TSA note of inspection scribbled with “C’mon son.” “The TSA found my weed and let me keep it,” Gibbs bragged on his Twitter account.
If Gibbs’ allegations are true, it’s the second incident of officers leaving a questionable note in passengers’ luggage. In October, a TSA officer was fired after jotting “get your freak on girl” next to a sex toy she had in her bag. Gibbs could be extremely lucky all he got was a note. Being caught with pot on an airplane can lead to trafficking charges — which are much more serious than possession counts.
A spokeswoman for the security agency said of the Gibbs incident, “TSA takes all allegations of inappropriate conduct seriously and is investigating this claim. Should the claims be substantiated, TSA will take appropriate disciplinary steps and refer the alleged possession of an illegal substance to law enforcement.”
