Double Check What Your Packing

If you're planning on taking a flight anytime soon, you may want double check what you're trying to take with you. Mark Howell with the Akron-Canton Airport, says often passengers tend to lose a number of prohibited items at CAK security checkpoints.  Howell says if the Transportation Security Administration finds common items and there's no intent to use them in any malicious way, passengers are asked to either get rid of or surrender the item before crossing the checkpoint. Firearms however, Howell says, will always warrant police involvement. He says you can find a complete list of prohibited items online or by downloading the CAK app.
