A Transportation Security Administration employee at Memphis International Airport was arrested by airport police Wednesday after he was accused of carrying a handgun into the main terminal building.
The gun was found during a security check at the terminal’s “A” concourse in a bag belonging to TSA employee Richard Banks III. He told airport police that he forgot the handgun, a 9mm Glock 17, was in the bag.
John Greaud, vice president of operations at the airport, said bringing the gun to the airport was not intentional.
