ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - A central Florida man faces charges after authorities say a loaded gun was found in his backpack at Orlando International Airport.
Police say 47-year-old Edward Jody Calderon was stopped Sunday morning after a security screener spotted a .22-caliber pistol, which was loaded with six rounds. An additional magazine with 10 rounds was also found in the bag.
The Orlando Sentinel (http://thesent.nl/PX2Fok ) reports that Calderon, who has concealed weapon permit, told police he forgot the weapon was in his backpack. He told them he had taken the handgun with him on a recent hunting trip for snakes he might encounter.
Calderon was arrested and charged with carrying a firearm in a place prohibited by law, a second-degree misdemeanor.
