Thirty-four-year-old Stefan Tsikhotskit of Wheeling was freed on $100 bail when the prosecutor said a BB gun found in his checked bag was a toy. He was arrested Tuesday on a charge of tampering with airport equipment.

The Hartford Courant reported an Enfield judge dropped charges Wednesday against 81-year-old Joseph Hunt of Merritt Island, Fla.

He was charged Tuesday with tampering with airport equipment and carrying a pistol without a permit.
