NEW YORK Authorities say a man from a Texas town called Gun Barrel City was caught with a loaded revolver in his carry-on bag at New York City's LaGuardia Airport.

Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Police said Friday that security officers noticed the handgun as Douglas A. White went through a security screening Thursday.

Police say the 61-year-old White was charged with criminal possession of a loaded firearm.

He was in custody Friday and unavailable for comment. It wasn't clear whether he had an attorney.

Gun Barrel City is about 60 miles south of Dallas.
