There have been a suspicious number of “hoax” incidents that look a lot like security tests at airports and on planes.
Jacksonville International Airport in Florida was closed for six hours after a man going through security told a checker that he had a bomb hidden inside his camouflage backpack, authorities said Wednesday.
The man, Zeljko Causevic, was charged with having a hoax bomb. He told authorities that the device — a luggage scale with two batteries and a microchip, plus a remote “detonator” — was “supposed to be a bomb, but it’s not.”
Causevic was scheduled to appear in bond court in Jacksonville Wednesday afternoon. An arrest report indicates he is originally from Bosnia.
Causevic is a common Bosniak last name. There have been a number of Muslim figures with that name so it’s a reasonably safe bet that Zeljko Causevic is a Muslim. And likely another of the Muslim refugees from troubled spots allowed into the United States.
While his religious affiliation is unconfirmed, his political status as a Registered Democrat is.
