Passenger had gun and bullets at Orlando airport checkpoint

26 Décembre 2017

A passenger tried to bring a gun and ammunition in a carry-on bag at Orlando International Airport, causing a long back-up at checkpoints during the Christmas holiday rush. She also said it was the 91st weapons intercepted by TSA officers at the airport in 2017.

The Chesapeake man was caught with a.22 caliber revolver and the Norfolk woman was caught with a.40 caliber, which was loaded with nine bullets.

In both cases, the guns were spotted by TSA officers at the checkpoint x-ray machine.

Orlando police told local news outlets that the person has a Florida concealed weapons license, but that federal law prohibits passengers from carrying weapons through security checkpoints.

On Friday, the group Identity Evropa reportedly erected a shrine to Damond outside the 5th Precinct building in south Minneapolis. The Minneapolis Mayor-elect Jacob Frey in the statement condemned the setting up of a memorial outside the police headquarters.

The two incidents are not believed to be related.

The fine for attempting to bring a firearm to a TSA checkpoint can reach up to $12,000.
