Virginia Traveler Stopped By TSA – Knife Found

An unknown Virginia man was stopped at the Richmond International Airport this week after a TSA agent caught a knife in the X-ray scan of his carry-on. When the agent couldn’t find the weapon after searching the man’s bag his items were placed through the scan one by one. This was when his laptop indicated the knife. The TSA agent is saying the knife was “artfully concealed” in the laptop.

The man initially told TSA that he did not know the double-edged black knife had been there, though later he admitted to owning the knife. TSA has called this a superb job on part of the agent who identified the threat and then work to disassemble the laptop to reveal the knife. The traveler will face a civil penalty for carrying the knife, including a fine that may range from $390-$2,250.
