A New York man is facing weapons charges after trying to take a badly concealed gun through an airport.
The alleged smuggler was discovered to be travelling with a gun wrapped in foil and then concealed inside a DVD player on Saturday, Yahoo news reports.
Transportation Security Administration (TSA) officials discovered the weapon via metal detectors and he was apprehended trying to board a plane to Mexico.
The weapon was a Zoraki Mod 914 pistol.
"Want to travel with a gun? I can assure you that wrapping it in aluminium foil and then concealing it inside a DVD player isn't the way to go about it," TSA spokesperson Lisa Farbstien said on Twitter.
"Queens man was arrested after @TSA officers at @JFKairport detected the artfully concealed weapon in his DVD player. C'mon man!"
The man has been charged with weapons violations.
