Officials with U.S. Customs have released an image of a “mock IED” (improvised explosive device) seized earlier this month from a passenger’s luggage at Toronto’s Pearson Airport.

U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) tweeted a photo of the mock device with the hashtag #catchoftheday Monday morning. A spokesperson for the agency said CBP agents discovered the mock IED during an inspection of a traveller’s suitcase at the airport’s pre-clearance area on April 6.

Joseph Galaska, 58, a US citizen, was trying to board a flight from Toronto to Chicago when the device was discovered. He was charged with mischief and released on bail. Galaska is scheduled to be back in a Toronto-area court on April 24.

During an interview with ABC News, his wife said the device found was an alarm clock.
