Toowoomba Police are warning people about the carrying of credit card knives.
Three people in as many weeks have appeared before the city's Magistrates Court, charged with unlawful possession of illegal weapons, after being found with the offending items when passing through Wellcamp Airport.
The items look like any other plastic credit card, but have a 5 centimetre fold-away blade attached within.
In separate incidents, airport security found a 19-year-old man carrying a credit card knife in his wallet, along with a 48-year-old man, and also a 57-year-old woman - was found with one in her purse.
