A woman carrying two guns and ammunition in a suitcase was detained after trying to take the weapons through a Beijing metro security checkpoint.

A security staff member noticed the gun-shaped objects in the woman’s Beijing during a routine security check at Gongzhufen Station on July 13.

In order not to cause panic, the station attendant used a code word in order to convey to colleagues that they had found a suspicious package. Security staff immediately began to redirect passengers to different security checkpoints.

The female passenger refused to cooperate with security staff and claimed that she did not know what was inside the suitcase. She finally relented, and a baggage scanner operator inspected the contents of the suitcase. Security searched the suitcase and found two guns. One was 90 cm, and the barrel and butt were separated. The other was a 15 cm long pistol. The woman also had 50 rounds of ammunition.

Security staff put the suitcase back in the X-ray scanner and called the police. The incident is now under investigation by police.

I would be surprised if anyone doesn't believe this as a false flag operation to avoid the whole metro bag check security thing being ridiculed
