(May 19) — A man attempt­ing to board a flight from Puer­to Rico to Boston on Mon­day was detained after secu­ri­ty offi­cers found his car­ry-on bag con­tained four box cut­ters, pep­per spray, a stun gun and a switch­blade knife. 

U.S. offi­cials have charged 59-year-old Jose Pol, a Puer­to Rican cit­i­zen who now lives in Rhode Island, with attempt­ing to board an air­craft with con­cealed weapons. Pol had a tick­et on Jet Blue Flight 860, which was to depart Luis Munoz Marin Air­port in Car­oli­na, Puer­to Rico. 

Trans­porta­tion Secu­ri­ty Admin­is­tra­tion screen­ers also found that Pol was car­ry­ing a pair of scis­sors, match­es, two lighters, a flight sim­u­la­tor pro­gram and a device that deliv­ers an elec­tric charge, accord­ing an FBI affidavit. 

Pol was detained at a TSA secu­ri­ty office until FBI agents arrived and took him into custody. 

The FBI is try­ing to deter­mine whether Pol is affil­i­at­ed with any ter­ror­ist orga­ni­za­tions, The Asso­ci­at­ed Press reported. 

“We will con­tin­ue to inves­ti­gate this mat­ter vig­or­ous­ly until we deter­mine the defen­dan­t’s motives in attempt­ing to board an air­lin­er with the dan­ger­ous weapons he was car­ry­ing,” U.S. Attor­ney Rosa Emil­ia Rodriguez-Velez said in a statement. 

If con­vict­ed, Pol could face up to 10 years in prison.
