An unusual situation developed at Juan Santamaría airport Wednesday when officers of the Vigilancia Aérea discovered a messenger who was transporting 200 knives.Most were of the pocketknife variety, but there was at least one butcher knife.
The messenger told officers he received the knives as a gift, but they said he could not remember who gave him the
present. The messenger had credentials that allowed him access to the area north of the principal hangars of the main terminal.
Police confiscated the knives as well as two canisters of pepper spray that the man carried. They also revoked his credentials.
The company for which the messenger works denied any knowledge of the apparent delivery.
