CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

The Transpiration Security Administration discovered that a 76-year-old passenger flying out of Chicago midway was carrying a firearm in his carry-on luggage, according to a statement from the TSA’s press secretary.

The passenger was flying from Midway to Bradley International Airport on Friday with a Jennings J-22 firearm in his carry-on luggage. Once the weapon was discovered, TSA notified local law enforcement immediately.

Local police arrived on scene and arrested the man on criminal charges.

For this year alone, the J-22 firearm is the fourth weapon to be discovered in carry-on luggage at Midway Airport.

Also, every time TSA discovers a weapon in a bag, the screening process for all other travelers is delayed.
