BOSTON, Mass. (AP) — Officials say a New Hampshire man was caught trying to bring a loaded handgun onto a plane at Boston’s Logan International Airport.

Transportation Security Administration officers spotted the .45-caliber handgun when the man’s belongings entered the X-ray machine on Monday.

The gun was loaded with one bullet in the chamber. An additional magazine was also found. In all, there were 14 bullets.

TSA officers contacted the Massachusetts State Police, who took possession of the handgun and detained the man for questioning.

The man, whose name has not been released, is a resident of Hooksett, New Hampshire.

The TSA has now found 18 guns at Logan checkpoints this year.
