2 men freed after guns found in bags at airport
WINDSOR LOCKS, Conn. — A Wheeling resident and another man have been released after a prosecutor said weapons found in their luggage in separate incidents at Bradley International Airport in Connecticut were not a threat.
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. A prosecutor said Hunt put the unloaded 9 mm pistol in his checked baggage and believed Connecticut was part of a multistate compact including Florida that allowed properly permitted and packed guns to be transported on airplanes. He was charged Tuesday with tampering with airport equipment and carrying a pistol without a permit.
