A man was arrested after a loaded firearm was discovered at a Logan International Airport security checkpoint Wednesday morning, according to TSA officials.
TSA officers allegedly found the loaded .9mm gun in the St. Louis-bound passenger’s carry-on luggage around 6:15 a.m.
State police responded to the checkpoint and arrested the Kyle Maguire, 28, of Bridgwater, Massachusetts.
Police say Maguire did not have a license to carry in the state.
He is scheduled to be arraigned in the East Boston District Court Wednesday morning.
Civil penalties for bringing firearms to a security checkpoint can range from $1,500 to $7,000 for a single violation.
TSA has discovered over 3,390 firearms at checkpoints across the United States over the past year.
