Loaded Gun Found In Carry-On At BWI Checkpoint

Posted: Updated:

LINTHICUM, Md. (AP) - Authorities say a Virginia man was recently arrested at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport after a loaded handgun was found in his carry-on bag at a security checkpoint.
    
The Transportation Security Administration announced Tuesday that the man was stopped Sunday afternoon when an officer staffing the X-ray machine spotted the gun in the bag of a man ticketed to fly to Salt Lake City. TSA says the gun was loaded with seven rounds with one in the chamber.
    
Maryland Transportation Authority Police say 36-year-old Ryan Watson of Stafford, Va., was charged with interfering with security procedures and wearing, carrying or transporting a handgun.
    
Watson could not be reached for comment and no attorney was listed in online court records.
