TSA: Troy man had loaded gun in bag at Albany International Airport
A Troy man had a loaded gun in his carry-on bag at Albany International Airport, the Transportation Security Administration said.
An x-ray machine spotted the weapon at a checkpoint on Monday. It was in a duffle bag with his clothes, the TSA said.
This was the third gun caught at a checkpoint this year, said the airport.
Travelers are instead supposed to put guns in checked luggage.
Federal penalties can be up to $15,000 for bringing a weapon to an airport checkpoint.
