LINTHICUM, Md. (AP) - Maryland Transportation Authority Police say a Walkersville man was cited after a handgun was found in carry-on items at a security checkpoint at BWI Airport.

It happened shortly before 6 p.m. Wednesday, police and the Transportation Security Administration said in emails. Authorities say an x-ray machine detected a .32 caliber handgun.

Police confiscated the gun and cited 28-year-old Kelby Scott Ferwerda for transporting a handgun and interfering with security procedures.
