BALTIMORE (WJZ)–A Maryland man was arrested at Baltimore Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport Saturday after a Transportation Security Administration officer caught him trying to bring a loaded handgun past the security checkpoint.
The Queen Anne’s County man had a loaded 9 mm handgun with three bullets in a carry-on bag, according to TSA.
Officers say they spotted the firearm as the bag was going through the x-ray machine.
The man told TSA officials that he forgot that he had the loaded gun with him.
This is the sixth gun recovered this year at BWI.
