Officials from the Transportation Security Administration say that a 69-year-old man was arrested after they found a loaded gun in his carry-on luggage at Gerald R. Ford International Airport.

The incident occurred Thursday when the man was going through security at the airport, preparing for a flight to Minneapolis.

TSA officials say they contacted police, who arrested the man.

People who bring guns to airport security checkpoints can face fines up to $7,000 and can also face criminal charges, the TSA said in a release.
