Man Tries to Hide Gun in Airport Planter Box
Airport authorities arrested 69-year-old Soren Johnson after they said they saw him trying to hide his gun in a planter box at an Oregon airport.
Johnson was reportedly arrested last month for investigation of reckless endangering.
Transportation Security Administration employees said Johnson was told he couldn’t carry his loaded weapon through a security checkpoint and that he should put it in his luggage instead. He allegedly disregarded their advice and dropped the .22-caliber pistol in an airport planter box on June 24.
