A passenger carrying a knife in a carry-on bag was able to pass through security at Newark Liberty International Airport on Wednesday, officials said today.
The Transportation Safety Administration says the 3-inch folding knife only came to the attention of security personnel after the unidentified man turned it over to a Delta gate attendant.
Davis said the TSA screener on duty is receiving remedial training.
A little more than an hour later, another screener at the same checkpoint noticed a firework in a passenger's bag. The three-to-five-inch cardboard cylinder was removed and the passenger was allowed to continue on.
