Man and Woman Found With Hidden Blades at NYC Airport: Authorities

A man and woman who allegedly tried to board a plane at New York's LaGuardia Airport with a razor blade and straight razor artfully hidden in their clothes have been arrested, authorities said.

Miguel Munoz, 40, of the Bronx, was found with a straight razor hidden in the removable sole of one of his shoes, according to authorities. A small tube of cologne was also found tucked in the compartment.

Lizbeth Esteras, 18, also of the Bronx, was found with a razor blade hidden inside her hat, in the band near the size label of the cap, the Transportation Security Administration said.

TSA officials found the weapons as Munoz and Esteras tried to go through security to board a flight to Miami around 5:30 a.m. Monday. The TSA notified Port Authority police, who placed the pair under arrest.

The two will face local charges, police said.

Attorney information for Munoz and Esteras wasn't immediately available.
