A man and a woman were detained by Port Authority police at Laguardia Airport Monday, after attempting to get through the Transportation Security Administration checkpoint to board a flight to Miami. 

Officials say the man had a straight-edged razor concealed in the removable sole of one of his shoes. The straight-edged razor and blade were found along a tube of cologne.

A woman also had a straight-edged razor and blade tucked behind the inside band of a ball cap that she was traveling with. 

TSA officials contacted Port Authority police after detecting the items. 

Both travelers were arrested and will face local charges.
