Man returned to China after body armor found in luggage

ROMULUS, Mich. (AP) — A 20-year-old man who had body armor in his luggage at Detroit Metropolitan Airport and weapons at a residence where he was staying in the Detroit area has been returned to China.

Customs and Border Protection officials said Friday that agents found the armor and other tactical apparel Aug. 18 at the airport west of Detroit in Romulus when the man arrived from Beijing. The man failed to declare the items.

A search of a Detroit-area home turned up an assault-type rifle, several handguns, high-capacity magazines and bump stock devices.

Officials said the man was rerouted back to China on another flight. His name and reason for being in the United States were not released.
