    Man Drops Gun in Airport Planter, then Boards Plane


    Syracuse (WSYR-TV)- TSA Officials say a man flying out of Hancock International Airport last weekend decided dealing with his gun was too much of a hassle so he left it for a janitor in an airport planter and boarded his flight to Boston.

    According to Gary Milano, Syracuse TSA Director, Michael Barbour, 45 of Longmont Colorado was flying from Syracuse to Denver with a connection in Boston last weekend. Barbour was traveling with a gun, and wanted to check it in his luggage.

    This is legal as long as the gun is locked, in a hard box and TSA officials are notified that the gun is in the luggage.

    Milano says Barbour asked U.S. Air, the airline he was traveling with, for a box but there were none left. He then asked TSA Officials what he should do and they suggested he ask around to other airlines, he did, and still couldn't come up with a box.

    According to Milano that's when Barbour approached a janitor working at the airport and asked him if he'd take the gun. The janitor agreed and Barbour left the gun in a planter in the Syracuse airport and then proceeded to board his flight to Boston.

    Milano says eventually the janitor "thought better of it" and told TSA officials about the incident.

    Milano was notified and in collaboration with Federal TSA Officials they were able to determine the identity of Barbour and take him into custody as he got off the plane in Boston.

    Milano says Barbour is charged with criminal sale of a weapon. He says Barbour should have driven the gun home and safely put it away even if this meant missing his flight.

    Fishy, more fishy than a beached shark that has been in the sun for two weeks...

    This is exactly how terrorists get guns through the detector. The janitor puts it in his trash and wheels it into a secure area. Sounds like this guy realized he was on CCTV.

    This idiot should be disqualified from ever owning another weapon on the grounds of terminal stupidity.

    Agreed.

    Not only was this completely stupid and ignorant a move, but he'd just willingly added yet another gun to the potential for crime gun pool further fueling the Brady fire.
