HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) – A Kentucky woman has been cited after trying to bring a loaded gun onto a plane at a West Virginia airport.

The Transportation Security Administration says in a news release that a TSA agent found the handgun in one of the woman’s carry-on bags at a security checkpoint Monday at Tri-State Airport near Huntington.

TSA officers contacted airport police, who confiscated the gun and cited the woman on a state weapons charge.

The statement says the woman, a resident of Martin, Kentucky, forgot she had the gun with her. The woman’s name wasn’t released.
