A 25-year-old Louisiana man was arrested at BWI Tuesday morning after an officer caught him at a security checkpoint with a loaded semi-automatic handgun in his carry-on bag.
Jamon Gerrell Stanton, of Baton Rouge, was found to have a 9 milimeter-caliber gun loaded with 12 bullets, according to Transportation Security Administration officials. The gun was spotted on the X-ray monitor.
TSA alerted the Maryland Transportation Authority Police, who confiscated the gun and arrested the man on weapons charges. Online court records for Stanton did not list an attorney.
