HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - 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 tells media outlets that 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.
