Mark Dye/For The Star-LedgerThe TSA security check point at Newark Liberty International Airport.
A passenger boarding a flight at Newark Liberty International Airport accidentally brought a hunting knife through a TSA security checkpoint without it being noticed, MyFoxNY reported. The passenger handed it over to security before boarding the plane. NJ.com community members are reacting to the news.
“It happens all the time. I accidentally had my fishing knife in my carry on 4 years ago. I showed customs that it was in the bag there and back. I had absolutely no idea it was in there in a pouch behind a pouch all the way in the bottom. I realized it was there when I arrived back in Newark when I was searching through my bag. I told officers and showed them the knife and I explained it to them that it was an accident. They just told me to have a good day and I left. No questions asked.”
