LINTHICUM, Md. (WJZ) — Transportation Security Administration officers at Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport have now caught 26 guns at the airport’s checkpoints this year, tying 2017’s record.
The 26th gun was spotted Saturday when an Annapolis man was found with a 9 mm handgun loaded with 15 bullets in his carry-on bag. He told officials he forgot his loaded semi-automatic handgun was with him.
A TSA officer spotted the gun in the bag when it was inside the checkpoint X-ray machine.
The man was arrested on weapons charges.
