A Portland International Jetport traveler was forced to give up a number of knives Sunday.
The New England TSA spokesperson said officers detected the items in the traveler’s carry-on bag.
Yesterday a passenger @portlandjetport ended up surrendering these throwing knives after @TSA officers detected them in his carry-on bag. He’d still have them if they were in his checked bag! #travelfail pic.twitter.com/1ljom9JbSX— TSA_NewEngland (@TSA_NewEngland) October 18, 2021
The TSA said he would’ve been able to keep the knives if they had been checked in his bag.
