Loaded handgun found in passenger's bag at John Glenn Columbus International Airport (KCMH)



COLUMBUS, Ohio — A passenger was stopped from getting a loaded handgun onto a plane when a TSA agent spotted it in his bag at a security checkpoint.

The TSA says the man was going through the checkpoint just before 5:00 a.m. Monday when an officer noticed what looked like a gun on the X-Ray. He immediately contacted the Columbus Regional Airport Authority Police Department.

During a search, officers say they found a loaded 9mm handgun.

Authorities haven't named the passenger, or said if he'll face any charges. The TSA says so far in 2017, officers have found 10 firearms at security checkpoints. They say they found 23 firearms in CMH in 2016.
