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.
