A Filipino native was arrested at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport after a search of his family’s luggage revealed a cache of weapons that included two Uzi submachine guns wrapped in Christmas paper and six .357 Magnums, police said. The arrest occurred as the man, identified by police as Lamberto Camacho, prepared to put his wife and two children on a Northwest Airlines jetliner headed for Manila. “We think this guy is a part-time gun-runner,” said Sgt. John Fanning of the Chicago Police Department’s O’Hare unit. “He told us the extra parts were for weapons that already had gone through previously.” Fanning said Camacho, 44, of Defiance, Ohio, works as a lab technician for General Motors Corp. He was charged with unlawful use of a weapon and attempting to board an airplane with weapons.
