Student arrested with boxcutters, scissors in backpack
Bulgarian student arrested in Atlantic City with boxcutters, scissors in backpack
When his backpack went through the X-ray machine, screeners spotted the scissors and pulled him aside, he said. A search of the backpack turned up the scissors, embedded in a bar of soap, and the boxcutters hidden in a lotion bottle, Johnson said. |
"The concern was there may have been some effort to conceal them," Johnson said. He said the fact that the man's one-way ticket was purchased over the Internet in August also raised suspicion.
