The Transportation Security Administration says a Plant City man had a loaded handgun at a security checkpoint at a Connecticut airport.

TSA officers spotted the gun when the man’s fanny pack went through the X-ray machine at Bradley International Airport at about 1:30 p.m. Thursday.

The TSA says 74-year-old David Charles Schultz, of Plant City, Florida, had a .22 caliber handgun loaded with 10 bullets and a box with 50 additional rounds of ammunition.

They contacted Connecticut State Police, who confiscated the gun and bullets.

Schultz was charged with illegal tampering or interfering with airports.

He was released on $500 bail and is scheduled to appear in court on May 30th.
