SONOMA, Calif. – A woman is facing a possible fine after federal officials say they found a knife inside an enchilada in her bag during security screening at a Northern California airport.
Transportation Security Administration spokesman Nico Melendez said the 8 and ½-inch long blade was found Monday at the Charles M. Schulz-Sonoma County Airport.
The passenger, who has not been identified, said she made the enchilada over the weekend, and didn’t know how the knife got into the bag.
She was questioned by Sonoma County Sheriff’s deputies, but was then cleared to board her flight.
Melendez said the TSA will review the case, and the passenger could be issued a fine for carrying a concealed weapon.
