HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Two inert C4 demolition explosives were found in a passenger's carry-on bag at the Honolulu International Airport this week.

The Transportation Security Administration recovered the items, which they say are found weekly at airports nationwide.

The objects are only novelty items, but are not allowed on planes.

"If an item looks like a realistic bomb, grenade, mine, etc., it is prohibited - real or not," the TSA web site states.  "When these items are found at a checkpoint or in checked baggage, they can cause significant delays in checkpoint screening."

No information about the passenger was revealed.
