Man Arrested With Loaded Gun at Newark Airport

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -

Transportation Security Administration officers say an Ocean County man packed a loaded gun in his carry-on bag at Newark Liberty International Airport.

Screeners detected the .25-caliber handgun, which was loaded with six bullets, as the knapsack passed through the X-ray machine on Saturday.

Police confiscated the gun and arrested the Lanoka Harbor, N.J., resident on a state weapons charge.

He was ticketed to fly to Hong Kong.

The TSA did not release his name.
