BOSTON (WHDH) - TSA New England shared a reminder for travelers Tuesday after a spokesperson said officers found a set of knives in a passenger’s carry-on bag over the weekend.
Spokesperson Dan Velez said officers at Logan Airport detected the “Naruto ninja knife set,” inspired by the popular Naruto anime series, in the bag on Saturday.
Knives, Velez said, should only be placed in checked bags, rather than carry-ons.
Saturday’s find at Logan came during a busy Memorial Day weekend at airports across New England. In total, TSA officials said they screened close to 334,000 people at the region’s six major airports between Thursday and Sunday, marking an increase of 32,000 from 2022 figures.
On Memorial Day itself, Velez said officers at Bradley International Airport in Connecticut also found a 75 mm inert artillery shell in a passenger’s checked bag.
“Inert or not…artillery shells are a no go!” Velez said in a Tweet.
