Florida man caught hiding guns in airport luggage www.privateofficer.com
ORLANDO, Fla. Nov 7 2010– Police say a Florida man tried to hide two handguns in his luggage for a flight to Puerto Rico.
The guns were found Wednesday morning at Orlando International Airport in Felix Davila’s checked luggage for AirTran flight 9 to San Juan, Puerto Rico.
Police say a Transportation Security Administration officer found disassembled guns and six ammunition magazines inside a music amplifier.
Davila was arrested on a city code charge of violating aviation personal-conduct rules that prohibit anyone from transporting weapons without the airport’s permission. TSA rules allow guns in checked luggage if the owner declares them at check-in and stores them in TSA-approved packaging.
Davila also was given a trespass warning prohibiting him from returning to the airport. He was released on $250 bail.
