Loaded gun found at Milwaukee airport is 9th firearm in 2018

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Transportation Security Administration agents discovered a loaded gun in a passenger’s carry-on bag at Milwaukee’s Mitchell International Airport.

Officials say the .380 Ruger was loaded with six rounds and was discovered during screening at a security checkpoint Wednesday. WITI-TV says Milwaukee County sheriff’s deputies confiscated the weapon.

The TSA says it’s the ninth firearm found at the airport’s checkpoints this year. Last year, 15 guns were recovered at the airport. Firearms can only be transported if properly packed in a checked bag and declared at the ticket counter.
