NEW YORK – Two passengers at LaGuardia tried to board a plane with several “artfully concealed” weapons hidden in their clothes and suitcases, according to officials.
TSA agents detained two people, both from the Bronx, on Monday around 5:30 a.m.
The passengers, 40-year-old Miguel Rosario Munoz and 18-year-old Lizbeth M. Esteras, had tickets for an American Airlines flight to Miami when they were stopped while trying to pass through security.
A search revealed a straight-edged razor inside a Munoz’s shoe, along with a blade hidden in a bottle of cologne, according to Port Authority Spokesman Joe Pentangelo.
Tucked inside the band of Esteras’ baseball cap, agents say they found a razor blade hidden near the label.
TSA agents alerted the Port Authority Police Department and officers detained the pair.
Munoz and Esteras face charges of criminal possession of a weapon.
