TSA agents confiscate pocket knife hidden in medicine bottle

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – TSA agents working at Wichita’s Dwight D. Eisenhower Airport and the Springfield-Branson Airport confiscated two concealed knives during the Thanksgiving travel period.

In a blog post Tuesday, agents in Wichita discovered a hair comb that detached to form a knife on a passenger traveling on Wednesday, Nov. 21.

A few days later on Nov. 26, agents in Springfield located a passenger carrying a small Swiss Army pocket knife inside a weathered medicine bottle.

Overall, agents seized more than 120 firearms in carry-on baggage from Nov. 19 through Nov. 30, though none were from Kansas City International Airport.
