An Israeli citizen was taken into custody after Transportation Security Administration employees detected the item during a screening, according to Port Authority spokesman Scott Ladd.

He told police he was headed to a police training seminar in Panama City, Florida after arriving in Newark on a flight from Tel Aviv and that the material was to be used as part of the training, according to Ladd. 

The Essex County bomb squad seized the device. The identity of the man has not been disclosed. The spokesman said he didn’t yet know if the Israeli would be charged.
