The TSA does a great job of sharing with us through their blog with weekly updates. I also love getting reminders to check what’s been found by following @TSA on Twitter.
Last night I checked out this week’s TSA airport finds in their weekly recap. Lots of crazy things were discovered by the good folks screening our carry-on bags.
Here are some of the more interesting finds:
Some concealed weapons:
A lipstick knife at DEN- Denver:
An IED ordinance kit at HNL- Honolulu. Items that look like real bombs are not permitted on flights. I’d figure that would be common sense but apparently this is not the case.
The IED kit below is a training kit found actually found in a checked bag. The TSA says that they know trainers need to travel with this kind of thing but that it should be shipped in advance.
- 80 Credit Card knives- From a photo that I saw, it reminded me a bit of the ChargeCard that I reviewed. However, instead of a USB cable, you get a knife.
- A 3 inch knife in someone’s shoe
- A beltbuckle knife (close to home) at LaGuardia Airport
- Stun guns
I find it pretty crazy that people actually try to fly with these kinds of items, especially these days…
