LAGUARDIA AIRPORT — Port Authority police have arrested a man who attempted to board a plane at LaGuardia Airport with unlicensed firearms, according to a criminal complaint.
Between 11:45 a.m. and 12 p.m. Sept. 25, Randolph Terry-Edward, 54, of Evans, Ga., allegedly declared two .22-caliber revolvers and eight rounds of ammunition for a pre-flight baggage check-in at Terminal C for a U.S. Airways flight, the complaint shows.
A U.S. Airways employee said Terry-Edward admitted that a gun case containing the guns and ammo on the counter next to him was his when he was asked about it, and that the traveler could not produce a valid New York state pistol permit, according to the complaint.
The employee reported that Terry-Edward then said, “I didn’t know you needed a permit,” the complaint said.
Terry-Edward was released on his own recognizance and is due to return to court Oct. 27.
