Every week, as a many as three dozen people get caught by Transportation Security Administration (TSA) screeners with guns at airport checkpoints around the country.

But this was different.

The Associated Press reports that TSA officer Rynel B. Delacruz, 25, was arrested Monday night at Orlando International Airport after a loaded .380 Ruger gun was found in his luggage at a checkpoint. He was arrested and released on $250 bail.

AP reported that TSA spokesman Jonathan Allen said Thursday that  Delacruz’s was no longer a TSA employee as of Wednesday.

Delacruz told police that he forgot the gun was in the bag, AP reported.
