Man, Woman Charged With Carrying Knives at Airport

A man and a woman are in custody after police say they both were carrying knives while at the Philadelphia International Airport.

TSA officials say they found a knife concealed inside a female passenger’s carry-on bag on a U.S. Airways flight around 11 a.m.

TSA officials found the knife through their scanners and took the woman into custody, according to investigators. She was then taken by Philadelphia Police.

Police also say a 42-year-old man tried to enter through a checkpoint for a Southwest Airlines flight around 5:30 p.m. while carrying a spring loaded switchblade. TSA officials say they spotted the knife during the screening process.

The man was taken to police headquarters for processing.

Police have not yet revealed the identities of the two suspects.
