Woman With Switchblade in Bag Arrested at A.C. Airport: Police

NBC10 Philadelphia

State police say a 65-year-old Florida woman was arrested at Atlantic City International Airport after screeners found a switchblade knife in her carry-on bag.
 
The Press of Atlantic City reports Angela Ricci of Beverly Hills was going through a checkpoint Saturday when the knife was found and confiscated.

  Ricci told authorities that she had not used the bag in more than a year and forgot the knife was in it. She was cited for unlawful possession of a weapon in a secured area and released on her own recognizance.
 
The incident did not disrupt airport operations.
