Florida Man Arrested at Chicago Airport for Gun in Suitcase

Authorities in Chicago say a Florida man has been arrested for having a loaded gun in his briefcase at Midway International Airport.

Chicago police say 46-year-old Kurt Young of Tampa, Florida, faces a misdemeanor count of carrying a concealed firearm at an airport. Bail was set at $15,000.

Police say the gun was discovered Saturday morning in an X-ray machine at a security checkpoint.

Young posted bond and was released. He is due in court on April 24.

It was immediately unclear if Young had an attorney. A listed phone number for Kurt Young in Tampa called Sunday didn't have voicemail.
