For second time in a month, man caught with loaded gun at airport checkpoint


SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — A Florida man was arrested at Syracuse Hancock International Airport on Wednesday after the Transportation Security Administration says he had a loaded gun at the checkpoint.

The TSA public affairs spokeswoman posted this photo.  She says the man claims he did not know he had the loaded handgun with him when he approached the checkpoint. After being questioned, he was arrested on a weapons charge.  

The TSA says the same man was caught about three weeks ago with a different loaded gun at the airport in Ithaca.
