A handgun was found Monday past the security checkpoint at Detroit Metro Airport.
A traveler found the gun about 5 p.m. in a bathroom at the McNamara Terminal. However, the finding did not slow down TSA operations.
TSA released the following statement:
"The firearm was identified as the property of a federal law enforcement officer employed by TSA as a Federal Air Marshal. The passenger turned the firearm over to local law enforcement."
"The agency is reviewing the circumstance and will take appropriate disciplinary action as necessary."
