TSA says passenger caught with knife after deodorant stick flagged (News4JAX)

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Officers with the Transportation Security Administration at Jacksonville International Airport (JAX) made an interesting find recently.

TSA said a passenger attempted to hide a knife in a deodorant bottle to sneak it through screening.

“This passenger really put the B.O. in bold, trying to conceal more than just odors in this tube,” the TSA said in a social media post. “However, our officers out at @JAXairport didn’t break a sweat discovering this knife. They were able to smell this one from a mile away.”

TSA said the best way to travel with your knives or blades is in a checked bag.
