A Florida man has been charged for allegedly attempting to bring a loaded handgun onto a plane at Bradley International Airport.

The TSA says agents found the gun stored in the fanny pack of the 74-year-old as it went through the X-ray machine Thursday afternoon.

They say the .22 caliber handgun was loaded. There was also a box with another 50 rounds.

It is the fourth gun found at Bradley International Airport this year.
