An Adams County woman was caught carrying a stun gun at BWI Airport in Maryland.

The McSherrystown woman was cited after trying to bring the stun gun on an airplane on New Year’s Day.

A TSA officer spotted the pink stun gun in the woman’s carry-on bag while she was passing through a X-ray machine.

The stun gun was made to look like a smartphone with a fake keypad and fake screen.

Officials say the device had two buttons in the location where the call and on/off buttons are typically located on a smartphone -- one was marked “LIGHT” and the other button was marked “STUN.”

Per protocol, TSA contacted the Maryland Transportation Authority Police who responded, confiscated the stun gun, and cited the woman, who is now facing a state weapons charge.

The woman was headed to California and after she was cited, she was allowed to catch her flight to Los Angeles.
