TSA: 2 found with loaded guns at Charlotte airport security


CHARLOTTE (AP) -- The Transportation Security Administration says two men have been charged for trying to bring loaded guns on planes at Charlotte Douglas International Airport.

Authorities say the two men tried to bring loaded guns through security checkpoints at about 6 a.m. and 6:30 a.m. Thursday. They don't believe the attempts are related.

TSA officers detected the guns and ammunition as the men passed through the airport checkpoints. The passengers were charged with carrying a firearm on airport property.

TSA officers have detected nine firearms at Charlotte airport checkpoints this year after finding 53 firearms there last year.
