PHOENIX – A 36-year-old woman was arrested last month at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport for concealing a weapon in her bra, the Phoenix FBI announced Tuesday.

On Nov. 28, Erine Aisha Robertson was allegedly trying to pass through security and board a flight to San Francisco.

Court documents show an alarm went off as Robertson passed through the sensor at the Transportation Security Administration checkpoint.

Authorities said Robertson was taken to a private screening room where she reached into her bra and pulled out a small pocket knife.

Robertson was charged with the federal crime of attempting to carry a weapon on an aircraft.

The Phoenix FBI thanked the TSA, Phoenix Police Department, Sky Harbor and the United State’s Attorney’s Office for their work on the case.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
