A Cal­gary man has been ar­rested in Mex­ico after al­legedly bring­ing a gun with him on a flight, ac­cord­ing to Mex­i­can re­ports.

Mex­i­can me­dia re­ported Fri­day that a man ar­riv­ing on a WestJet flight was found to be con­ceal­ing a Colt .25 au­to­matic hand­gun and am­mu­ni­tion in a checked bag.

The re­port states the man, iden­ti­fied only as Ti­moty N, lacked nec­es­sary doc­u­men­ta­tion to bring the weapon into Mex­ico and was ar­rested at Can­cun In­ter­na­tional Air­port.

Global Af­fairs Canada con­firmed Fri­day af­ter­noon that a Cana­dian ci­ti­zen has been ar­rested in Mex­ico, adding they were un­able to dis­close any other in­for­ma­tion.

WestJet said they are look­ing into the re­ports.
