While TSA agents are busy strip-searching grannies, other passengers are looking to board flights with grenades and so-called credit card knives.

The Transportation Security Administration says that explosives experts at Newark LibertyAirport discovered five grenades in a passenger’s bag on Saturday.

The TSA said the grenades were determined to be “inert” and that the Belgium-bound passenger surrendered her items to officials. There was no impact to airport operations, the agency said.

Officials with the agency also announced that they discovered yet another credit card knife in the wallet of a passenger headed to Los Angeles on Saturday. The knife, the TSA said, was similar to one confiscated on November 22 during the Thanksgiving travel week.
