CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) – A Putnam County woman won’t face charges after a loaded gun was found in her carry-on bag at Yeager Airport.

The Transportation Security Administration says TSA officers staffing X-ray machines at a checkpoint detected the .380-caliber semi-automatic handgun Wednesday morning.

The agency says the gun was loaded with seven rounds, including one in the chamber.

Yeager Airport Police confiscated the gun but chose not to arrest the Scott Depot woman.

The federal agency says the woman missed her flight to Atlanta.
