NEW YORK (PIX11) — A New York man was caught with a gun in his carry-on bag at John F. Kennedy Airport on Wednesday, authorities said.
The Sullivan County resident was going through a security check when officers spotted the unloaded weapon, according to the Transportation Security Administration. The gun was packed with a magazine containing five bullets, the TSA said.
The man told authorities that he packed his own bag but the gun wasn’t his. He was arrested on a weapons charge and the gun was confiscated, officials said.
The TSA has recovered four guns at JFK this year.
