TSA: Loaded gun found in Alabama man’s luggage at DC airport

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) — Authorities say they found a loaded gun in an Alabama man’s luggage at Washington Dulles International Airport.

The Washington Post reports airport police say Transportation Security Administration officers found the gun Wednesday inside 27-year-old Neal Mock’s carry-on bag.

The .40-caliber handgun loaded with 10 rounds was confiscated and Mock, of Florala, Alabama, was charged with a state weapons violation. This is the 12th gun found at the airport this year.

TSA officials say roughly 80 percent of the guns caught at airport checkpoints are loaded.
