NEWARK, New Jersey (WABC) -- A worker at Newark Airport is under arrest after he tried to bring a loaded gun to work.

TSA stopped the man with a 9-millimeter handgun in his backpack at Terminal C last Saturday.

The Port Authority was alerted and then confiscated the weapon.

Authorities say he was employed by a company at the airport. His employee badge has since been taken away and he is no longer employed at Newark.

The penalty for bringing a weapon to a TSA checkpoint is as high as $15,000.
