Another loaded gun has been found at Newark Liberty International Airport, and authorities say it's the 11th such incident so far this year.
A .38 caliber revolver, loaded with five bullets, was spotted by Transportation Security Administration agents inside a carry-on bag at a checkpoint in Terminal B.
The bag belonged to a woman from Orange, who claimed she did not know the weapon was in her bag or who owned it.
The TSA reminds travelers on its website that bringing a weapon into an airport carries a federal civil penalty.
