Gun, Brass Knuckles Found in Bag at W.Va. Airport


The Transportation Security Administration says a loaded handgun and brass knuckles were discovered in a carry-on bag at Huntington Tri-State Airport.
The agency says the bag’s owner was detained but wasn’t charged. The woman missed her flight and was allowed to book another one, without the weapons.
A TSA officer saw the .32 caliber North American Arms handgun in the bag during a routine screening Friday at an X-ray machine checkpoint. The gun was loaded with six rounds. Another loaded magazine also was in the bag.
Airport police confiscated the weapons and ammunition.
