GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) -- A 69-year-old man was arrested at Gerald R. Ford Airport after Transportation Security Administration agents found a loaded handgun in his carry-on luggage.
TSA agents discovered the .357 Colt revolver Thursday while the man was attempting to fly from Grand Rapids to Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
The man faces a fine of $1,500 up to $7,000 for bringing a firearm to a security checkpoint.
TSA officials say this was the second gun confiscated at Ford Airport this year.
In 2014, TSA agents discovered more than 2,200 firearms at checkpoints.
