RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

TSA agents at Richmond International Airport are sending out a message after a man is stopped with two realistic replica guns.

Agents spotted the guns on Sunday around 11:30 a.m. when a carry-on bag went through the X-ray machine.

RIC Police confiscated the guns and allowed the man to continue his flight to Dallas.

The TSA says realistic replicas of firearms are prohibited in carry-on bags and must be packed in checked baggage. Anyone caught with prohibited items can be fined up to $11,000.
