TSA Confiscating Credit Card Knives Daily
VANDALIA-- A knife disguised as a credit card is the latest weapon to pose security threats at Dayton International Airport. The weapon folds from a full sized knife and handle, into the shape of a standard credit card that can fit in your wallet.
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) reports that hundreds of the knives are being pulled from airports across the country, and the problem is growing. A TSA spokesperson said the weapon is being pulled four to five times a week from passengers at Dayton International Airport.
YouTube videos posted by people testing and selling the knife's capabilities explained how it snaps together, and it's ability to cut through a tennis ball while still weighing less than an aluminum can.
"Does four or five times a week startle you?" Reporter Kelly May asked just outside airport security, "Yes absolutely!" Replied Brittany Saunders who was waiting to pick up an arriving passenger, "That absolutely surprises me."
"That is shocking coming out of Dayton. I wouldn't have expected that here," replied Mike Baumgartner to the same question.
Springfield resident Cobey Etheringtin said, "I think it's a good thing they're finding [the knives] but I don't understand why people would bring them with them."
When the same airport patrons said they were not surprised the item was being made, and sold.
"The bad guys are always looking for the next way to get ahead and believe that our TSA folks are aware of that and are actively looking for it," said Baumgartner.
"I would hope not but looking at it it looks like a possibility," Baumgartner continued when asked if he thought the knife could slip past security.
"I know men have to take out their wallets and that sort of thing but I could see that slipping through the scanners," Saunders added.
TSA officials are reminding that if you own this knife, leave it at home if you are going to fly. They say if your caught with one it will be confiscated and you will also be taken out of security to do a full bag check.
