NEW YORK - A Tennessee man is being held on six counts of criminal possession of a weapon pending an arraignment after a loaded, defaced rifle was found in his checked luggage at New York's Kennedy International Airport.
Keenan Draughon was arrested Saturday morning as he prepared to board a flight to Charlotte, N.C.
A police spokesman says the 23-year-old Clarksville man also had high-capacity magazines, which are illegal in New York.
U.S. Transportation Security Administration rules allow only unloaded weapons in checked luggage.
The police spokesman says the serial numbers on two rifles were defaced. He says Draughon was also carrying two handguns in his checked luggage.
