Man cited after attempting to bring loaded handgun onto plane at Buffalo Niagara International Airport (KBUF)

A man was cited by police last Friday after he tried to bring a loaded semi-automatic handgun onto an airplane at Buffalo-Niagara International Airport.

According to a press release from the Transportation Security Administration, the East Amherst man was caught with a .380 caliber handgun in one of his carry-on bags. The weapon was loaded with seven bullets, including one in the chamber. 

A TSA officer contacted the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority Police after spotting the gun in a checkpoint x-ray machine. They confiscated the firearm and cited the man on weapon charges.

There was no impact on the airport's operations.
