SYRACUSE, N.Y. – A Rome woman was stopped by Transportation Security Administration officers at Syracuse International Airport on Wednesday after they saw a loaded gun in her carry-on.

A TSA officer noticed the .32 caliber handgun on the checkpoint X-ray machine, and was loaded with three bullets. The gun was confiscated and the officer called Syracuse Police.

Police did not file charges against the woman after learning that she had a valid New York state pistol permit.

This is the fifth handgun confiscated at the airport this year.

TSA officials say even travelers with concealed firearm permits are not allowed to bring guns onto airplanes in their carry-on bags. In addition, TSA has the authority to assess civil penalties of up to $13,333 for weapons violations.

Travelers should contact their airline regarding firearm and ammunition carriage policies.
