American tourist potentially facing 12 years in prison due to ammunition discovered in luggage in Turks and Caicos

Valerie Watson returned from a trip to Turks and Caicos to find her husband, Ryan, in jail facing a 12-year sentence for carrying ammo in his bag. Others have also faced similar situations. Tourists were previously able to pay fines for carrying ammo, but now face prison time. The U.S. embassy warned travelers to check for stray ammo. Despite extenuating circumstances, the law mandates prison time. Ryan Watson shared the impact on his family. The TSA found a record number of guns at airport security last year. The Turks and Caicos government confirmed the law.
