TSA Finds Knife Hidden In Enchiladas At Sonoma Airport
A California woman could face heavy fines from the TSA for allegedly having over an eight-inch long blade knife in her carry-on bag.
A TSA officer found the knife concealed in an enchilada at a screening station in Sonoma Airport Monday.
The woman was given to sheriff's deputies who questioned her, but decided to clear her to travel.
TSA officials say the woman told them she doesn't know how the knife got into the bag.
"This item turned out to be an eight-and-a-half inch knife that was inside of a wrapped enchilada. The woman said she had made the enchilada over the weekend, and she really didn't know how the knife got into the bag," said a TSA spokesperson.
The TSA says the woman could face up to a $10,000 fine for the incident.
