GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) - A Newaygo man was arrested Sunday when a loaded hand gun was discovered in his carry-on luggage at Gerald R. Ford International Airport.
A TSA officer noticed the gun while checking the X-ray machine. Officers found a 9-mm Ruger P-95 hand gun, loaded with 15 rounds, with one chambered. The TSA contacted airport police, who confiscated the gun and ammunition and arrested the Kasey Kohlhoff, 27, on state charges. Kohlhoff has been released on bail.
Kohlhoff did have a Michigan concealed pistol license and was originally ticketed to fly to San Antonio through Detroit.
The TSA reminds everyone that firearms are not permitted in carry-on luggage. Anyone traveling with a firearm needs to check the gun in a hard-sided, locked case and declared with the airlines. Passengers are responsible for the contents of the bags they bring to the security checkpoint.
