NEW YORK -- Security officials say they found two stun guns, a machete and other weapons in a man's checked baggage at John F. Kennedy International Airport.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey says the baggage belonged to a man heading to Dubai and the items were found by Transportation Security Administration agents. It says the man has been arrested.

Port Authority police say the Queens man also had starter pistols, pellet guns and boxes of pellets in his luggage.

The man was taken into custody Wednesday and charged with criminal possession of a weapon.
