A Sussex County man was arrested at Newark Airport after he tried to carry a gun -- loaded with hollow-point bullets -- onto a flight, Port Authority police said.

Voight C. Kempson, 57, of Sparta was charged with illegal possession of a weapon and the ammo, the authority's Joseph Pentangelo told Daily Voice.

Authority officers arrested Kempson after a security checkpoint X-ray at Terminal C showed the black Kahr CM9 pistol in the bag around 9:20 a.m. Saturday, Pentangelo said.
