U.S. Customs and Border Protection Port of Wilmington and U.S. Coast Guard Sector Delaware Bay discovered a box of 40 rounds of Zombie Terminator .38 ammunition during a joint examination of outbound shipping containers at the Port of Wilmington last week.

CBP officers initially detected an anomaly during an x-ray examination of a shipment of household goods destined to Honduras. Officers examined the container and discovered that the anomaly was a box of ammo.

It is illegal to export firearms, weapons parts, and ammunition without a federal license and permits from the U.S. Department of Commerce or the U.S. Department of State.

“Ultimately, Customs and Border Protection does not want illegally exported ammunition ending up in the hands of criminals or criminal organizations who could use that ammo to hurt innocent victims,” said Keith Fleming, acting director of field operations for CBP’s Baltimore Field Office. “CBP remains committed to working with our law enforcement partners like the U.S. Coast Guard to detect, deter and disrupt illegal activities and dangerous products at our ports of entry.”
