TSA says they've caught hundreds of weapons from large knives to nunchucks
From large knives to nunchucks to small blades that look like a credit card, TSA officers say they have caught hundreds of bizarre weapons at Houston airports in 2012.
For the first time, Local 2 was given an inside look at what officers confiscated at both Bush Intercontinental and Hobby.
"It's the entire array," said Lynda Johnson, TSA Stakeholder Manager in Houston. "This is just a broad sampling of the kind of stuff they (TSA officers) see every day."
Officers caught passengers with stun guns, chemical sprays, brass knuckles used as purse accessories and cell phone holders, a circular saw, and even a loaded spear gun.
Officers also found the items inside carry-on bags or passenger's pockets as they went through TSA security checkpoints.
Johnson said what happens to those caught with prohibited items depends on what TSA and Houston Police officers determine was the intent.
