A 53-year-old Vermont man is facing criminal charges, after authorities say he tried to go through the security checkpoint at Albany Airport with a handgun in his carry-on luggage. 

Sheriff Craig Apple says John Mallard had a Smith and Wesson .380 on him when he went through the screening area. 

Apple says Mallard does not possess a New York pistol permit. 

He's facing misdemeanor weapons charges, and has a court date in Colonie on January 10th.
