Well, we know where Freddy Krueger has been all these years: Atlanta.
Earlier this week, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) released its annual list of most unusual finds for 2018, and at the top of it all is Freddy’s iconic razor glove.
The glove was taken at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport last May, and the administration shared a photo of it to its Instagram, including a pretty clever caption.
“It’s safe to sleep on Elm Street again,” the TSA reported. “Freddy lost his glove at the Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL). He got burned after forgetting to take it off before going through the TSA checkpoint.”
Take a look below.

It’s safe to sleep on Elm Street again. Freddy lost his glove at the Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL). He got burned after forgetting to take it off before going through the TSA checkpoint. … If you find yourself needing to travel with your razor glove, please pack it in your checked bag. … Travel #PSA: While worn out fedoras and tattered green and red sweaters are discouraged in the fashion world, they are permitted at TSA checkpoints. … This glove was actually discovered in a traveler’s carry-on bag at ATL. Freddy isn’t real. Or is he??? #FreddyKrueger #NightmareOnElmStreet #ATL
It’s actually fitting that Freddy would be hanging around the airport. Between the constant lines, the grotesque coughing, and the sudden delays, the airport often feels like a nightmare, especially with all those James Patterson novels lying around.
All joking aside, the glove was hardly the only oddity uncovered. Other noteworthy items that made the list include an inert mortal round, tuxedo “grenades”, and, no joke, a live snake in a hard drive that was seized in Miami. Take a look at the video for yourself below.
