The Los Angeles Times reports a man attempting to board a flight to Boston was stopped in Puerto Rico after his carry-on bag was found stocked with four box cutters, a switch blade knife, a stun gun and information about New York City, federal law enforcmement officials said Wednesday.

The man, identified as 59-year-old Jose Pol of Rhode Island was arrested Tuesday at an airport security checkpoint after screening his carry-on bag led to a second, physical search that turned up the dangerous items. They also included pepper spray, two lighters, matches, scissors, a flight simulation program and a wire device that sets off an electric charge.
