An O'Hare Airport baggage handler stands accused of stealing a Chicago police officer's gun.

23-year-old Abdoulaye Barry was charged with unlawful use of a weapon, aggravated concealment of a weapon, possession of ammunition without a valid FOID card and failure to possess a FOID card. Barry was arrested Wednesday night.
