QUEENS (WABC) -- Officers found two jars of peanut butter containing parts of a handgun at JFK Airport, TSA says.
The .22 caliber gun parts were wrapped in plastic and had been jammed into the middle of two plastic jars of peanut butter.
The gun's magazine was loaded with bullets, officials said.
Officers made the find when a checked bag set off an alarm.
A man from Rhode Island was arrested.
Travelers can fly with a gun if they have a proper permit and the gun is properly packed.
