Update 2 p.m.Police identified the suspect as 21-year-old Tony Nguyen of San Francisco.

Original Story 7:30 a.m.: Never mind a change of shirts, apparently, all you need for a trip to the south is a luggage full of weed.

A South Carolina-bound man was busted yesterday morning allegedly trying to travel with 67 pounds of pot in his bag, police said.

According to KTVU, the marijuana was found when TSA agents were doing their typical random searches of bags.

TSA agents were looking for explosives but, obviously, they couldn't ignore this other illegal find. They called in the Alameda County Sheriff's Department who was probably pleased to come pick up both marijuana and man.

The suspect, whose name has not been released, was arrested on suspicion for possessing marijuana -- lots of it.

Looks like he won't be making it to Charleston any time soon.
