ATLANTIC CITY, New Jersey (WPVI) -- The Atlantic City International Airport made it on the TSA's 2021 Top 10 List of most unusual finds at airport security checkpoints.

According to the agency, someone tried to get through airport security with six bullets hidden inside a deodorant stick back on September 4.

The stick of deodorant was flagged by agents when it triggered an alarm at the airport's x-ray machine.

"It was a creative attempt to subvert security, but of course an X-ray machine can detect bullets! The item triggered an alarm, alerting the officers to take a closer look at what could have caused the alarm," said the TSA in a press release.
