Officers with the Transportation Security Administration have seized another loaded handgun at a North Carolina airport checkpoint.

A news release from TSA on Friday said an officer spotted the loaded .38-caliber Smith & Wesson revolver in a woman's carry-on bag as it passed through the x-ray machine at Charlotte Douglas International Airport.

The passenger was questioned by Charlotte-Mecklenburg police and cited for carrying a weapon on airport property.

It's the 68th firearm detected at Charlotte Douglas in 2017, compared to 54 in all of 2016.
