July 11, 2011, Newark, N.J. – An FBI spokesman says there's no indication that
an attack was imminent using a stun gun found in a plane that landed
in Newark, N.J., after a flight from Boston.

Newark FBI spokesman Bryan Travers says the investigation is
focusing mostly on how the stun gun ended up on the flight.

The stun gun was found in the pocket behind a seat on a JetBlue
plane around 10:20 p.m. Friday by a cleaning crew. Authorities say
they gave it to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey
police, who handed it over to the Transportation Security
Administration. The TSA is responsible for screening people before
they board flights.

The Boston office of the FBI is heading up the investigation as
to how it got onboard.
