Superior Township man arrested at Metro Airport after loaded handgun found in carry-on
A 39-year-old Superior Township man was arrested Monday at Detroit Metro Airport after a loaded handgun was found in his carry-on bag, the Detroit Free Press reported today.
The man had a valid permit for the gun, which was discovered when his bag went through an X-ray machine, the report said. He was arrested for a checkpoint violation Monday afternoon and was released on bond, according to the Free Press.
An airport spokesman told the newspaper that the man forgot the gun was in his bag, and they have no reason to believe there was a "terrorist plot."
