Cleveland police find gun in carry-on at airport

Authorities say a loaded handgun and knife were found in a carry-on laptop case at a Cleveland Hopkins International Airport security checkpoint.

Police say 60-year-old Richard Buxman, of Poland in suburban Youngstown, was arrested and charged Monday with carrying a concealed weapon. He was released on $1,000 bail and faces a Friday common pleas court hearing.

A Cleveland police officer says he found a loaded 9mm handgun, two loaded clips, a folding knife and a loose bullet in the case after a transportation officer saw the gun and knife on an x-ray.

Police say the wife, "in a distressed state," told an officer she had packed the bag and that both had forgotten the weapons were inside.

A phone message seeking comment was left Wednesday morning at Buxman's home.
