ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say security officers found a loaded handgun in a flight attendant’s carry-on bag at a Florida airport.

The Orlando Sentinel reports that 28-year-old Joseph Brozyna was arrested Thursday and charged with carrying a concealed firearm and carrying a firearm in a prohibited place.

Police say the Frontier Airlines flight attendant was passing through security at Orlando International Airport when Transportation Security Administration agents found the .40 caliber pistol. An arrested report says Brozyna acknowledged that the gun was his. He told police he recently went on a road trip with his gun in the bag and forgot to remove it.

Officials say Brozyna’s concealed carry permit had been suspended.

Frontier Airlines says Brozyna has been suspended.

Brozyna is free on $2,750 bail. Jail records don’t list an attorney.
