NEW YORK, July 22 (UPI) -- The Transportation Security Administration said a pair of shoes seized at a New York airport had fake guns for heels.

The TSA posted a photo on its Twitter account of a pair of high-heeled shoes with fake revolvers as the heels, ABC News reported Monday.

The TSA said the heels were seized from a woman traveling at New York's LaGuardia Airport.

"Also, what not to wear through a #LGA checkpoint," the tweet read.

The agency said the shoes were banned for being replica guns. They were voluntarily surrendered by the traveler, who was not arrested or fined.
