Agents checking vessels for suspicious activity as part of 'Operation Viper'


The Transportation Security Administration was checking barges on the Ohio River Tuesday in what it dubbed "Operation Viper."

TSA agents were boarding barges and checking in with captains to see if they've seen anything suspicious and to remind them to be vigilant. They are also checking the licenses of the barges and conducting safety inspections.

The operation is being run under the Interstate 275 bridge near the borders of Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky. The U.S. Coast Guard was also part of the operation.
