A traveler with a concealed blade in tow was stopped at a checkpoint in Boston’s Logan International Airport last week, according to the Transportation Security Administration.
Agency spokesperson Dan Velez tweeted out a picture of the cane with its handle twisted off, revealing the long blade within.
The man was questioned by Massachusetts State Police after the discovery last Tuesday and was allowed to proceed through the airport once he surrendered the cane.
The TSA said the man apparently had “no idea” the blade was present.
