DENVER — Some of the discovered weapons couldn’t harm a fly. Others could be used to obliterate a small army.

Officials at the Denver International Airport confiscated both after they were discovered at security screenings in the past week.

The first discovery was made on sometime in early January, when Transportation Security Administration agents discovered two fake hand grenades in a passenger’s checked baggage. The second discovery was made at 7:14 a.m. Monday, when police discovered 20 rounds of .40-caliber ammunition in a passenger’s carry-on.

Neither passenger was charged with a crime, and each was allowed to proceed to their flights after surrendering the illicit materials.
