11 September 2022: Richmond, Virginia

A North Carolina resident was arrested by the police after Transportation Security Administration (TSA) officers at Richmond International Airport caught him with a loaded handgun in his carry-on bag yesterday (Sept. 11), on the 21st anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the United States. The .45 caliber handgun was loaded with five bullets including one in the chamber. TSA officers stopped the man when his carry-on bag triggered an alarm in the security checkpoint X-ray unit. Upon spotting the weapon, TSA alerted airport police, who responded to the checkpoint, confiscated the handgun and arrested the man.
