Marine Pleads Not Guilty To Having Ammo In Bag

A Camp Lejeune. Marine has pleaded not guilty to charges that he had bomb making materials, a gun and ammunition in his baggage at a Boston airport.

Cpl. Justin Reed, of Jacksonville, was freed on $2,500 bail Tuesday after entering his plea to charges of possession of an infernal machine and violation of airport security rules. He was arraigned in East Boston District Court.

The 22-year-old Reed was arrested during a layover at Logan International Airport on Sunday after federal baggage screeners found the items in his baggage. He was flying from Las Vegas to Charlotte.

The Transportation Security Administration is investigating why the guns and ammunition were not detected in Las Vegas.

Neither Reed nor his lawyer commented.
