In this episode of FBI Retired Case File Review, retired agent Jennifer Coffindaffer reviews a case she worked on in 2003 when assigned as the Senior Resident Agent at the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. She arrested Fazal Karim, a Canadian of Pakistani origin, for trying to board a flight with 32 razor blades concealed in his carry-on luggage. He had flown into the country from Dubai and Paris earlier that day and, after arriving in Dallas, was attempting to travel on to Houston. They believed he was trying to evade and test airport security. Jennifer Coffindaffer served in the FBI for 25 years.
