BOSTON (AP) — Police have arrested a New Hampshire man they say brought a loaded handgun to Boston’s Logan International Airport.

The Transportation Security Administration says the Salem, New Hampshire man was found with a loaded 9 mm handgun in one of his carry-on bags on Monday.

The gun was spotted by the checkpoint X-ray machine. It was loaded with seven bullets, including one in the chamber.

The man’s name has not been released.

It was the first gun found at the airport this year. TSA agents removed 21 firearms from carry-on bags at the airport in 2018.

The TSA says anyone who brings a gun into an airport faces a fine up to $13,000.
