Airport Weapons Arrest

On November 6, 2019, Transportation Security Agents (TSA) at the Ithaca-Tompkins Regional Airport notified Tompkins County Sheriff's Deputies that a handgun had been located in a passenger's carry-on bag at the security-screening checkpoint.  Deputies assisted TSA with the investigation and learned that the handgun belonged to Norman R. BROWN, age 69 of Jupiter, Florida.  BROWN did not possess a New York State Pistol Permit.

Tompkins County Sheriff's Deputies arrested BROWN for Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the Fourth Degree (Class A Misdemeanor).  BROWN was issued an appearance ticket to appear in the Town of Lansing Court on December 5, 2019 at 5:00 PM.
