Oct 26 (Reuters) – A Tennessee man faces six felony weapons charges after police found two rifles, two handguns and high-capacity ammunition in luggage he was trying to check at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport on Saturday, an official said.

Police arrested Keenan Draughon, 23, at about 8 a.m. EDT when the guns and ammunition were found in his bags, said Joe Pentangelo, spokesman for the Port Authority of New York.

Draughon, who is from Clarksville, Tennessee, approached the counter at United Airlines and declared he had two cases of firearms to transport, Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said in a statement.

Brown said Draughon was bound for Charlotte, North Carolina, although police originally reported he was heading to Nashville, Pentangelo said.

Draughon was charged with six counts of criminal possession of weapons, Pentangelo said, although it was not immediately clear why he was carrying the guns.

NEW YORK Police say a Tennessee man has checked luggage containing a loaded, defaced rifle at New York’s Kennedy International Airport.

Keenan Draughon was arrested Saturday morning trying to board a flight to Charlotte, N.C., after Port Authority of New York and New Jersey police found the weapons. Police spokesman Joseph Pentangelo says Draughon also had high-capacity magazines, which are illegal in New York.

U.S. Transportation Security Administration rules allow only unloaded weapons in checked luggage.

Pentangelo says the serial numbers on two rifles were defaced. He says Draughon was also carrying two handguns in his checked luggage.
