WESTBURY - Authorities say a man from Westbury is accused of trying to sneak a loaded gun through airport security at JFK.

TSA officers stopped 42-year-old Joseph Fusillo yesterday morning after they say an X-ray machine caught a 40-caliber gun in his carry-on bag.

Port Authority police confiscated the gun and arrested Fusillo.

Passengers are allowed to travel with unloaded firearms in their checked baggage if they are properly packaged and they are declared.
