Photo of a barbie doll box, like the one described.On the morning of April 16, security officers in Wisconsin discovered a 4.5-inch knife hidden inside a Barbie doll box in a passenger's carry-on bag.When the passenger was questioned, he said that he forgot which Barbie doll box he put the knife in and thought the box with the knife was in his checked luggage.

He wanted to bring the knife on his trip and thought it would be safest to store it in the box. After searching the passenger's luggage, law enforcement officers confirmed that he did have two additional Barbie doll boxes in his checked baggage.

The passenger surrendered the knife, but had to rebook on another flight.
