OMAHA, Neb. (AP) Transportation Security Administration employees discovered a loaded handgun at a security checkpoint in an Omaha airport this week.

The TSA said Thursday a passenger tried to bring a .40 caliber Smith & Wesson handgun in a carry-on bag at Eppley Airfield on Wednesday. It was loaded with 14 rounds.

The Omaha Airport Authority Police Department interviewed the passenger, who was later released. The passenger has not been identified.

This is the 10th firearm found during security screenings at the airport this year.

The administration says it can fine passengers up to $11,000 for bringing a gun to a security checkpoint.
