(INDIANAPOLIS) - A man was taken into police custody at the Indianapolis International Airport after a loaded gun was found in his bag, police said.

Just after 5 a.m., airport police were called to the Transportation Security Administration checkpoint on reports of a firearm investigation after TSA officials noticed the image of a loaded gun inside a passenger's bag on the security monitor, officials said.

Police identified the passenger as David Schnitz, 57.

When police asked Schnitz about the contents of the bag, he said that he was aware of the gun and that he had packed the bag himself, officials said.

Upon further investigation, police found more than $400 on Schnitz and $2,500 in his wallet.

Schnitz was arrested on charges of entering an airport with a weapon and taken to the Marion County Arrestee Processing Center.
