Plane Evacuated Over Anti-Wrinkle Device

Authorities stopped a plane on the runway and evacuated the flight after a passenger found a suspicious-looking object on board.

That object turned out to be an anti-wrinkle device. The "Bar 24k Golden Anti-aging Skin Roller" was left in the back pocket of a seat on the airplane. It's about 6 inches long and is meant to vibrate the wrinkles away. It is very common in Japan and Korea, but not so much in the United States.

The passengers were evacuated and the plane was taken to an isolated location where a K-9 search unit inspected the aircraft.

Officials could not return the roller to its owner since it was left on the plane from another flight.
