The Transportation Security Administration says its inspector found five inert grenades in a passenger’s checked bag at Newark Liberty Airport. But the agency does not believe they were part of any terror plot.
  

TSA spokeswoman Lisa Farbstein says the explosives were found in a bag of a Brussels-bound passenger Sunday.
  

The agency says it’s not clear why she was traveling with the weapons and that she surrendered them.
  

The agency says there were no lockdowns or delays because of the discovery. No arrests were made or are expected to be made.
