NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Authorities say a Florida woman concealed a stolen handgun and a loaded bullet magazine in her checked suitcase at Newark Liberty International Airport.

The Transportation Security Administration says screening technology alerted an officer, who opened the bag and found the .40-caliber handgun and 10 rounds of ammunition on Tuesday night.

The Jacksonville, Florida, resident was ticketed to fly to Mumbai, India.

The TSA says the woman was charged with illegal possession of a stolen firearm. Her name was not released.

The incident had no impact on airport operations.
