According to Alaska Airlines, TSA cited a male passenger on Wednesday at Lindbergh Field after finding ammunition in his carry-on luggage.

An Alaska Airlines passenger was cited at Lindbergh Field on Wednesday morning after TSA officers found ammunition in his carry-on luggage, according to an Alaska Airlines spokesperson.

The airline confirmed they received this information from Nico Melendez, who’s with the TSA.

Melendez said the TSA found a loaded magazine with six rounds of .380-caliber ammunition inside a carry-on bag belonging to an Alaska Airlines passenger.

According to a Lindbergh Field airport supervisor, the incident occurred around 11 a.m. The man was given a citation and permitted to continue on with his flight as planned.

The airport supervisor said this is pretty much standard procedure when ammunition is found inside carry-on luggage. The citation did not carry a fine.

Airport reps said the incident did not cause any sort of security delay.
