RICHMOND (AP) -- A Disputanta man faces state weapons-related charges after federal officers found a handgun in his carry-on bag at Richmond International Airport.
 
The Transportation Security Administration says its officers discovered the .25-caliber handgun as the bag passed through a metal detector on Monday.

The incident didn't affect the airport's operations.
