A 22-year-old man is blaming his mother after a gun was found in his luggage by Transportation Security Authority agents at Baltimore Washington International Airport (BWI) last week, according to Fox News and Business Insider.

Ryan Moore of Hagerstown, Maryland was arrested on weapon charges by Maryland Transportation Authority Police after the collapsible .40 caliber rifle was discovered by TSA agents when his baggage went through an X-ray machine.

Moore said he did not know the gun was in his luggage, TSA told Business Insider in a statement.

“The man claimed he did not know that he was carrying a rifle because he said his mother packed his bag,” the statement read.
