A 50-year-old-man stunned officers at a bus station in southwest China when he entered the security screening heavily armed, literally.

As the man in question, surname Zheng, placed his luggage on the security scanner in Duyung, Guizhou province, officials found that he was carrying two human arms inside his bag, according to South China Morning Post.

Unsurprisingly, he was immediately detained by security, who presumed that the severed appendages were the result of a murder or violent act.

“I asked him what was in the bag and he said it was an arm,” said one of the guards, according to reports.

Zheng later explained that the arms belonged to his brother, and had to be amputated after he was accidentally electrocuted.

He told officers that, as per village customs, his brother asked him to return the limbs back home so that they could be buried with the rest of his body in the future.

After verifying his statements with the hospital where Zheng’s brother remained in treatment, he was released from custody.

Transporting human body parts in China requires several permits and staff at the station stated that such things are banned from buses regardless, citing concerns for public health.

While it is unlikely that Zheng will be criminally charged, he could potentially face “administrative penalties,” and he will have to find a new way to get his brothers arms home.

For the moment, the limbs remain in limbo.
