Knife Found Hidden Inside Airline Passenger's Enchiladas at Sonoma Airport


Transportation Security Administration agents found a sauce-covered knife stuffed inside enchiladas in a woman's carry-on bag at the Charles M. Schulz–Sonoma County Airport on Monday morning.

The TSA said security at the Northern California airport confiscated the 8-1/2-inch knife, but allowed the woman to board her Alaska Airlines flight. 

"The woman said she had made the enchiladas over the weekend and she really didn't know how the knife got into the bag," TSA spokesperson Nico Melendez told KTVU.

“Looks like homemade enchiladas,” Melendez tweeted, along with two snapshots. 

Initially, the tweets and photos erroneously stated the incident occurred at the Oakland airport. A correction was re-tweeted a few hours later. 

The TSA could pursue penalties of up to $10,000 against the passenger for carrying the concealed weapon. 

The TSA website gives regulations for anyone wishing to transport knives on aircrafts.

I can understand a knife or spoon falling in the pot of sauce and getting "lost" temporarily. I cannot understand it getting put in assembled enchiladas!

WTH? You have got to be crazy letting her on the plane. Oops forgot the cutlery in my enchiladas?!? No sorry, that's a BIG no enchilada in my opinion. For whatever reason it was there, far too lenient for real!
