What you’re seeing here is a cool little piece of history that was discovered in a carry-on bag by TSA officers at the Albany International Airport (ALB). It’s the original prototype of what is known today as the stabby cat. … Originally known in the mid-18th Century as “Ye Olde Cleaving Cat,” it was forged by famed blacksmith Jeduthan Jabb at his Williamsburg, Virginia shop. It had the same purpose then as it does today. Self defense. While they were permitted on wagons in the 18th century, they are not permitted in the cabin of a commercial aircraft today. … One more thing about Jeduthan Jabb. He wasn’t a very tall man. Not nearly as tall as this tale we’ve told you. In fact, he didn’t even exist. But hey, it really was discovered at ALB and it is prohibited. … Please pack these in your checked bags and be sure to familiarize yourself with local laws as these are illegal in some states.

It’s #NationalBookLoversDay and #TBT (Throw Back Thursday)! Scroll through these older pictures to see definitive proof that you just can’t tell a book by its cover. Some people like to keep their nose in a book, and others… Well, these are all items that traveler’s tried to sneak past our officers in the past. Concealed prohibited items can lead to missed flights, fines, and even arrest. … Hiding things in books has been going on as long as there have been books, which would literally make it the oldest trick in the book. Think about that… … All of you bookworms will be happy to know that books are fine to pack in checked and carry-on baggage. There’s nothing better than cracking open a good book on a flight. But remember, there’s always a chance our officers might have to check them out, but they’re permitted. … In order from beginning to end: Ninja Book w/ Knives (December, 2011 #LAX), Bullets In A Bible (July, 2009), Burning Book Magic Trick (April, 2014 #PHX), Knife In Book (June, 2012 #OGG), Gun In Book (March, 2012 #HNL), Contraband In A Book (May, 2012 #DEN), Contraband In A Book (May, 2014 #PHL). … #ProTip – Hiding prohibited items in books could get you in a bind.

Something tells us this wasn’t the sharpest knife in the drawer, because this just didn’t cut it. Our officers aren’t looking for contraband, but if you pack it with a knife or other prohibited item, you might as well stick a fork in it. We’re going to find it. … This contraband was discovered in a traveler’s carry-on bag along with their knife at the George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH). All knives – no matter how small – must be packed in checked baggage. … TSA doesn’t have any regulations that address the possession or transportation of marijuana and cannabis infused products, but under Federal law and many State laws, it’s a crime to possess or transport any detectable amount of marijuana. … Having a State-issued cannabis card or other documentation indicating that the marijuana is for medical purposes doesn’t exempt you from TSA’s requirement to notify law enforcement. It’s up to the responding officer, not TSA, to determine if possession of the marijuana is authorized under State law, or whether to make an arrest or confiscate it. … #TSA #IAH #traveltips #marijuana

We know it didn’t go down this way, but we’d like to imagine that the groom lobbed these inert well-dressed grenades over his shoulder to his groomsmen, just as bouquets are tossed to bridesmaids. We could see a conversation going something like this. … Chad: “I was so close to catching one, bruh.” … Randy: “Whatever, Chad! Close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades. Oh wait…” … Randy & Chad: “Hahahahaha! Bruh…” … OK, back to the real world. These dapper inert grenades were wedding gifts for groomsmen. They were discovered in a checked bag at the Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR). … When our officers spot a potential explosive on the monitor, they cannot just open the bag and take a looksee to find out if it’s real or not. A TSA explosives specialist or a police department bomb squad must respond before the bag is ever opened. This can lead to costly evacuations, delays, and missed flights. These types of items can also lead to hefty fines and arrest. Contact your preferred shipper about your options, because they can’t travel via commercial aircraft. So even though they aren’t real, they can cause a lot of headaches.

Did you know that TSA officers discovered an average of more than 76 firearms a week in carry-on bags in 2017? The pictures here are just a handful of some of the firearms discovered in carry-on bags this year. Just last week, 94 firearms were discovered in carry-on bags around the nation. … While firearms are prohibited in carry-on bags, you can pack them in your checked baggage as long as you meet the packing guidelines at TSA.gov. Some airline policies may differ from TSA’s. We strongly suggest travelers contact their airline for specific firearm and ammunition policies and to check local laws related to the carrying and transport of firearms. … As a refresher, carry-on bags go into the cabin of the plane with you. Checked bags go into the cargo hold of the plane where passengers have no access. … Please note that conceal carry permits do not apply to commercial aircraft. … When firearms are discovered at the checkpoint, we contact law enforcement and they decide what happens to the traveler based on background checks, interviews and local laws. … A firearm at the checkpoint could lead to fines, arrests, missed flights or all of the above. TSA does not confiscate any firearms. The responding Law Enforcement Officers take control of the firearm. If you’re curious as to what happens to the firearms, you would need to contact local law enforcement. … As far as knives and other prohibited items, they are usually transferred to another federal agency without reimbursement, donated or abandoned or destroyed. Typically the items are donated to state surplus agencies for their sale or disposal, in which case the state keeps any profit from sales of those items. You may want to check with the  surplus agency in your state at: bit.ly/gsapropertyforsale … #TSA #Firearms #ConcealCarry #Guns #TravelTips

If you think these scissors will cut your travel time through the checkpoint, you’ve got the wrong idea. … Please don’t get snippy when our officers tell you that you can’t pack these ginormous ceremonial ribbon cutting scissors in your carry-on. … These were discovered in a carry-on bag at the Nashville International Airport (BNA). And it wasn’t by “shear” luck that our officers discovered them. They’re huge. To paraphrase Douglas Adams, these scissors were big. Really big. You just won’t believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big they were. … However, scroll to the next picture and you’ll see a run of the mill regular pair of sewing scissors. These are allowed. At one point, all scissors were prohibited, but for the last 10-years or so, scissors have been permitted as long as they are no longer than 4-inches from the fulcrum. This picture is a screenshot of a tweet that was sent to our AskTSA team. … Speaking of the AskTSA team, have you ever wondered whether or not you can pack a certain item? If you’re a regular follower of this account, I’m sure you can think of many situations where it would have behooved somebody to send us a picture first. Well, fret no more! Now you can do just that! … Simply snap a picture and tweet it to AskTSA (twitter.com/asktsa), or send it via Facebook Messenger (facebook.com/asktsa) and our team will get back to you promptly with an answer. … And that’s not all! Contact the team about any TSA related issue or question you might have. They can even help you if you don’t see TSA Pre✓® on your boarding pass. … The team looks forward to answering your questions, 9am-7pm daily. #AskTSA #TSATravelTips #TSA … #PSA – While it’s ok to pack scissors, you should never, ever run with them.

Happy #JustBecauseDay! Why is there a “Just Because Day” you might ask? Well, just because. Duh… … One might also ask why somebody would pack a replica gun/speaker with a built-in FM radio and laser pointer in their carry-on bag. In this case, we don’t think it was just because. … We think it’s because they didn’t know or didn’t understand the rules. Replica firearms are not allowed to be brought onto the cabin of an aircraft with carry-on items. They must be packed in checked baggage. … This replica firearm was discovered in a carry-on bag at the Des Moines International Airport (DSM). Even though they’re not dangerous, replica weapons make people nervous and we’d hate to see a plane get turned around for a toy such as this one. So consider this a travel tip to not pack any toy or realistic replica firearms in your carry-on. … #RandomThought – Blasting the volume on this gun could trigger a blown speaker. … #TSA #NationalJustBecauseDay #DSM

It’s #TBT time, and we thought we’d give a shout out to our good friends at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (@USFWS). If you love wildlife, you’ll love their account! … The following pictures are from when officers discovered smuggled wildlife in luggage. When we find animals being smuggled, we contact the USFWS who respond to the scene. … Eels!!! The eels were discovered in 2012 in a checked bag at the Miami International Airport (MIA). Among many other things, the traveler was attempting to transport 163 marine tropical fish and 22 invertebrates to Maracaibo. The passenger surrendered the items to the USFWS. One could say this was a really good catch. 🎣 … Snake In a hard drive! Discovered earlier this year, a traveler on her way from MIA to Barbados attempted to smuggle a snakelet inside of an external hard drive. The USFWS responded and took possession of the snake and cited the traveler. Both the traveler and the snake missed their flight. As we said in our original post, this python had not gone full monty. It was wearing a nylon stocking. … Bottled Seahorses. There’s nothing funny about dead seahorses. In 2012, an oversized bottle of liquor was detected in a carry-on bag at Detroit (DTW). Not only was the large bottle of liquor prohibited, but so were the five dead endangered seahorses inside the bottle. … Smuggling is not for the birds! Two birds were discovered during a pat-down in 2011 at LAX. They were wrapped in socks and taped to the leg and chest of a woman who was traveling to China. The USFWS responded and arrested the woman on suspicion of smuggling and exporting an endangered species out of the United States. … Snakes almost on a plane! In August 2011 at MIA, seven small snakes stuffed in nylon stockings were discovered in a traveler’s pants after being screened in a body scanner. In addition to the snakes, he also had three small turtles [Insert inappropriate jokes here]. The USFWS officers arrived on the scene and took custody of the reptiles. The passenger was arrested and charged with violating the Lacey Act. … #TSA #USFWS #SnakesAlmostOnAPlane 🚫 🐍 ✈️ @usinterior
