Officials in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday seized prohibited items such as brass knuckles and razorblades from those passing through security checkpoints around the city, according to the Associated Press.

Law enforcement reportedly arrested a local resident for buying razorblades, a banned item, from the city’s downtown area, according to a tweet from local outlet, the C-Ville Weekly’s, Twitter account.

The article goes on to state the following:

Authorities are checking for banned items at checkpoints throughout Charlottesville in an attempt to preclude any potential violence on the anniversary of last year’s deadly “Unite the Right” rally, which ended with a man with alleged neo-Nazi ties driving his car into a crowd of counter-protesters, killing local resident, Heather Heyer.

The city is requiring that all people who pass through access points either submit to consensual checks by law enforcement or give up their bags before going inside the blocked-off area, the AP reported. Unchecked bags and packages are not allowed to enter the premises, according to a statement from Charlottesville authorities.
