Authorities say a 63-year-old central Iowa man was arrested after a loaded gun was found in his bag at the Des Moines airport.
A Transportation Security Administration officer spotted the gun Tuesday morning as the bag was going through a security screening. It was the third firearm discovered during a screening at the airport this year.
Michael Fendley of Stratford told authorities that he'd forgotten that the gun was in the bag and that he had a permit for it. Fendley was arrested on a charge of violating a screening checkpoint restriction. He's been released.
