TSA: Passenger had handgun in backpack at Boston airport
BOSTON (AP) — A Maine man was stopped at Boston’s Logan International Airport last week with a 9mm handgun and a gun magazine in his backback.
The Transportation Security Administration said Monday that the man was stopped at about 5:30 a.m. Friday at a Terminal B security checkpoint.
State police found that the man had an expired concealed firearms permit. He was informed that he would be issued a summons for illegal possession of a firearm.
The agency did not disclose his name.
It was the second time during the Thanksgiving holiday rush that a gun was detected in a passenger’s carry-on luggage at Logan.
