GREER, S.C. -

GSP International officials say at least a dozen travelers have arrived at the airport in Greer bearing arms since January.

The airport evidence room includes a couple of Smith & Wesson's, a Sterling .22, a Kel-Tec .380 and a number of other guns along with more than 100 rounds ammunition.

Firearms, ammunition, firearm parts and realist replicas of fire arms are prohibited in carry-on bags when traveling by air from any airport in the nation.

However, the guns and ammunition was taken from people who were unaware they were tucked away inside their carry-ons.

"If there is a gun in your bag, TSA will find it and the GSP Police will respond," said GSP Police Chief Bobby Welborn in a written statement.

"Passengers are reminded to thoroughly check your bag before you pack your bag."
