Traveler caught with sword concealed in cane told TSA he had ‘no idea’
By: April Carson
Well, someone isn't getting through security.
On Tuesday, a TSA officer at Logan International Airport in Boston discovered a blade hidden inside a passenger's cane. This caused a bit of a stir on social media, as people were surprised that anyone would try to bring a weapon like that onto an airplane.
According to Dan Velez of the TSA, the passenger "had no idea there was a sword in there." After being questioned by Massachusetts State Police, the man surrendered his cane and was allowed to continue his journey.
The passenger was not arrested, but was "questioned by law enforcement," Lisa Farbstein said. It's unclear what happened to the cane after the incident.
This is far from the first time TSA has caught a passenger with a weapon hidden in an innocuous-looking object.
In December, a traveler was caught with a knife concealed in a brush at the Augusta Regional Airport in Georgia. And in November, a TSA officer at the Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey found a knife hidden inside a snow globe.
Blades are frequently hidden in objects that appear to be normal. In the past, TSA has found knives hidden in pens, lipsticks, and even shoes.
If you're carrying a cane, make sure to check it before going through security. You never know what might be hiding inside.
At the Ithaca Tompkins Regional Airport on Thursday, a passenger attempted to pass through security with a dagger hidden in a hairbrush handle, according To TSA spokesperson Lisa Farbstein's tweet.
The TSA wrote on its blog that the man was carrying a "hair brush with a 3.5 inch metal dagger concealed in the handle."
Even if an item appears to be a cane with a hidden sword, some carry-on items may be prohibited, according to the TSA.
If you're caught carrying a concealed weapon at the airport, you could face civil penalties from TSA of up to $13,000. You could also be arrested and prosecuted by local law enforcement.
