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.
