U.S. authorities have charged a man with attempting to board a flight from Puerto Rico with weapons including a stun gun, a switchblade knife and four box cutters.
Prosecutors say Jose Pol was passing through a security checkpoint at the island's main airport when Transportation Security Administration agents discovered the weapons in his carry-on luggage.
FBI spokesman Harry Rodriguez said Wednesday that investigators are trying to determine whether Pol has any affiliation with terrorist organizations.
Pol was scheduled to take a JetBlue flight to Boston when he was arrested on Monday. In addition to the knives agents found pepper spray and a flight simulator program in his luggage.
