(KSL News) -- A man who tried to smuggle weapons onto a flight at Salt Lake International Airport has been sentenced.

Ruber Mario Dulong-Montoro was sentenced to 36 months of supervised release. He agreed to an immediate deportation to his native Peru.

Last month security agents found stainless steel shears, two box cutters and spare blades in his baggage.

Dulong-Montoro said he never intended to hurt anyone. He claims the items are not available in Peru and he wanted to use them for gardening and handiwork.
