A Virginia man is under arrest after NYPD officials say he tried to sneak into a Times Square subway station with a loaded gun.
Investigators say they discovered a loaded 9mm semi-automatic handgun on Travis Marks of Richmond, Virginia, after two officers spotted him going through a subway exit gate at 42nd Street and Eighth Avenue Friday evening.
The officers discovered Marks was carrying the weapon after they saw him trying to get rid of a plastic bag with a white powdery substance inside.
Marks is now facing charges that include criminal possession of a weapon and criminal possession of a controlled substance.
The arrest comes a little more than a week after a man was accused of jumping a turnstile with a loaded gun at the 14th street PATH station.
