Police: Gun found in baggage at Philly airport

Police: Gun found in luggage at Philadelphia Int'l Airport hours after fireworks led to arrest By The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA (AP) ' Police say a man was taken into custody at Philadelphia International Airport for having a loaded handgun in his luggage a little more than 12 hours after a man with explosives in his bag was taken into custody.

Lt. John Walker says the 42-year-old man was arrested without incident at a security checkpoint around 7 p.m. Thursday. Walker tells the Philadelphia Daily News it's unclear the man knew the .25-caliber handgun was in his bag.

Earlier Thursday a man was arrested at the airport after powerful fireworks were discovered in his backpack after he arrived for a cross-country flight. Twenty-nine-year-old Joseph Picklo faces federal charges of attempting to carry an explosive device onto an aircraft.



Authorities say Picklo had commercial-grade fireworks and two containers of powdery substances in his bag.
