Gun Found At Wichita Airport

KSAL StaffMay 20, 2015

Security officers have found a loaded handgun in a carry-on bag at Wichita’s Dwight D. Eisenhower National Airport.

Local media outlets report a .380 caliber Smith & Wesson Bodyguard firearm was found loaded with six rounds on Monday. Wichita Airport Police took the weapon and interviewed the passenger, who was allowed to continue on his flight.

The Transportation Security Administration says firearms are allowed in checked bags, if declared to the airline and properly packed in a locked, hard-sided container. TSA can levy a civil penalty of up to $11,000 against a passenger who brings a firearm through a security checkpoint.

This is the third firearm discovered during a checkpoint security screening at the Eisenhower National Airport this year.
