SAN ANTONIO – No, you can’t bring fireworks through an airport on a trip, but you knew that didn’t you?

Even in a year where the coronavirus pandemic limited most people’s travel plans, Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agents were still able to seize some interesting items.

Surely, a traveler had to have known the smoke bomb wasn’t going to make it, right? And no matter how creative your knife is, even a lipstick look-alike will not make the plane.
