DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The Transportation Security Administration is showing off contraband pulled from passengers at the Dayton International Airport.

The TSA says it is a reminder to people about what is and is not allowed onboard airplanes.

They showed everything from small knives to peanut butter jars that passengers tried to get onboard a flight.

Stringent rules have been in place for travelers since September 11, 2001 to strengthen security at our nation’s airports. The TSA says nearly 1.8 million people travel through airports everyday at nearly 450 airports.
