Transportation Security Administration officers say they found 13 knives, including switchblades and a butterfly knife, inside a man’s carry-on luggage at a Washington-area airport.

TSA spokesman Kawika Riley says an officer operating an X-ray machine last week at Thurgood Marshall Baltimore-Washington International Airport noticed something suspicious in the man’s luggage.

Sgt. Kirk Perez, a Maryland Transportation Authority Police spokesman, says 25-year-old Amr Gamal Shedid of Baltimore had been trying to board a flight to Minnesota. He says Shedid told investigators he collects knives.
