Louis-Jeune said he was still awaiting additional details about the passenger. Two other police sources in Haiti confirmed to the Miami Herald that the man in question is Jacques Yves Sebastien Duroseau, 33, a former U.S. Marine who boarded American Airlines Flight 949 from Miami International Airport into Port-au-Prince on Tuesday.

He had both weapons and ammunition, and they were in gun cases. One Haitian police official said he was told the man had been given permission by American Airlines to travel with the guns. “He had a signed paper,” the Haitian police official said.

American Airlines spokeswoman Martha Pantin said the airline was “reviewing to see whether the passenger declared the weapons.” She also said the guns were in a checked bag.

Pantin said Duroseau started his trip in New Bern, N.C. He then traveled to Charlotte, N.C., and then Miami where he boarded a 10:34 a.m. American Airlines flight to Port-au-Prince Tuesday. A source said he had a total of six bags.

Police have not said what tipped them off to the man, whose brother also was arrested after he came to pick his brother up. But a Haitian customs agent told the Herald that agents became suspicious when they saw the three black cases, two of which were long. Often these cases mean guns are inside.

Duroseau was immediately sent to a secondary check but then became agitated, forcing agents to secure all of the airport’s exits and send arriving passengers from a Delta Airlines flight out of another door.

“He didn’t want us to touch the boxes. He said his stuff will not go through a scanner,” said the agent, who asked not to be identified because he didn’t have permission to speak to the media.

Cat-shaming: Russian loses airline miles over fat pet swap

  Cat-shaming: Russian loses airline miles over fat pet swap Russia's Aeroflot on Tuesday stripped a passenger of his air miles after he boasted online of sneaking his overweight cat on board by switching him for a slimmer cat during check-in. The next day Galin came to the airport prepared with "the cat, the cat double and its owners," and successfully checked into business class after "the operation to switch Viktor the fat cat for Phoebe the miniature kitty was successful".Traveller Mikhail Galin wrote in a Facebook post last week that his cat Viktor was judged too fat to be taken into the passenger cabin during a layover in Moscow on a trip from Latvia to his home in Far Eastern Vladivostok.

Several times every day, at airports across the country, passengers are trying to walk through security with loaded guns in their carry-on bags, purses or pockets, even in a boot. And, more than a decade after 9/11 raised consciousness about airline security

MIAMI – An unruly passenger was removed from a Miami to Chicago flight after being tased by Miami -Dade Police, according to authorities. The "disagreement", according to the arrest affidavit started when Garcia touched a female passenger inappropriately without her permission.

The agent said one of the boxes contained six guns, including two Uzis and a .45 caliber pistol. Agents from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and officials from the U.S. Embassy were then called, as well as Haitian police and a justice of the peace. If the firearms were indeed Uzis, they would be fully automatic. Such weapons are almost always illegal to own in the United States.

Federal law allows passengers to travel with unloaded firearms as checked baggage as long as the weapons are in a locked, hard-sided container. They also must declare the weapons or ammunition to the airlines at check-in.

Haiti is under a U.S. arms embargo, making it difficult for guns to be imported into the country without authorization from the Haiti National Police. There are also restrictions on the types of firearms that are allowed.

The country, which is undergoing a deep political and economic crisis, is also awash in illegal arms. On Monday, a video showing gangs with assault weapons engaged in a shootout along the road leading to the airport was circulated on social media.
