Security agents caught the third gun in nine days – and the second this week – at Pittsburgh International Airport on Friday, Transportation Security Administration officials said.
Security officers stopped a Westmoreland County man at the security checkpoint after they spotted a .38-caliber handgun in the man’s carry-on bag.
Allegheny County Police discovered the man, identified in court records as Richard Santone Sr., did not have a license to carry the gun.
Santone, of Hannastown, is charged with carrying a firearm without a license, court records show.
It was the second time this week TSA agents stopped a traveler trying to take a gun through security in their carry-on.
