Transportation Security Administration officers stopped a man from Hamilton County from bringing a loaded handgun onto a flight at Westchester County Airport on Tuesday, authorities say. Officials say the man's .380 caliber handgun was loaded with six bullets. They say he also had multiple credit cards, each with a different name on them, when he was arrested on weapons charges. TSA says the man was caught as he entered a security checkpoint, when an X-ray unit alerted a TSA officer to inspect the contents of the carry-on bag. The man also faces a financial penalty that can be up to $15,000 for bringing a gun to a TSA security checkpoint. Officials say this was the fourth gun that TSA officers have detected at the airport security checkpoint so far this year, which already ties the number caught in 2022.
