HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - Officials say a West Virginia man has been caught with a loaded gun at an airport checkpoint.

The Transportation Security Administration on Monday says the man was stopped with a 9 mm handgun in his carry-on bag at the Huntington Tri-State Airport Sunday.

The TSA didn’t release the man’s name but said he was cited by police on a weapons violation. The gun had a bullet in the chamber and there were another 13 bullets in his bag.

A TSA news release says guns are allowed in checked bags if they’re properly packaged and declared.
