ACHEVILLE — His handgun was hijacked by airport police, US Representative Madison Cawthorne, local and federal officials said, and he is likely to confront a federal fine and forfeiture of private security status.

The Republican congressman representing District 11 in western North Carolina was trying to board a plane on Feb. 4. On September 13, Transportation Security Administration workers found an unload handgun in his bag, along with a loaded magazine, according to Asheville Regional Airport officials.

The weapon is described in a revised incident report and police radio traffic recordings as a “9mm Glock pistol.”

Cawthorne, whose spokesman responded to questions July 30 saying he had brought the gun by mistake, has not been charged with any crime, according to reports and other information about the incident obtained this month through a request for public records. This is a natural outcome, spokeswoman Tina Kinsey said.

“In 2021 so far, eight firearms have been reported at the checkpoint, and in each case no criminal charges have been brought,” Kinsey said, adding that passengers were secured with firearms and allowed to travel without theirs.

Kinsey said Cawthorne’s pistol was secured at the airport and recovered following his flight.

In the recordings, an officer can be heard repeating several times to another officer that an elected official was found in possession of a handgun.
