QUEENS, N.Y. — TSA officers stopped a woman who tried to bring a machete through a security checkpoint at LaGuardia Airport on Sunday, an official said.
The unidentified woman had the machete in her carry-on bag, according to TSA spokesperson Lisa Farbstein.
The woman allegedly told TSA agents she didn’t know it was in her bag, Farbstein said in a tweet on Monday.
Port Authority Police confiscated the machete and issued the woman a summons. She was allowed to board her flight, Farbstein said.
