10 Weird Items Confiscated by The TSA

Comments Off on 10 Weird Items Confiscated by The TSA 19728

The TSA or Transportation Security Administration is the government agency that was created in the wake of the 9/11 attacks in an attempt to improve safety for air travelers. Since TSA workers are charged with checking out passengers and their belongings before they are allowed to board a commercial flight, they do occasionally find some strange things. You would not think normal people would attempt to board a flight with items like this in their possession, but apparently there are quite a few “forgetful” travelers criss-crossing the friendly skies. Here are just a few weird things TSA workers have found in the course of their work.

1. Cane Sword

TSA workers in Charlotte, North Carolina made a rather startling discovery in the form of a 13-inch cane sword. This is a weapon that looks just like a cane that a person might use to help them walk, but in reality the “cane” is actually more of a sheath for the sword hidden inside. Calling this item a “cane sword” may be a bit of a stretch, since something that’s 13 inches long does probably not rise to the level of being a sword, and a 13-inch cane is of little or no use to anyone except someone who is extraordinarily tiny. Still, it’s a unique find to be sure.
