A reporter for KDKA (1020) was arrested today after sheriff’s deputies said he tried to bring a loaded handgun into the Allegheny County courthouse.

Rob Milford, 53, of Castle Shannon was charged with carrying a firearm without a license and entering a court facility with a firearm, according to the Post-Gazette.

The .38-caliber revolver was found during a routine screening. The newspaper says Milford was covering the trial of the alleged East End rapist.

KDKA Program Director Marshall Adams told the newspaper that there was “no undercover effort” by the station to test security. The incident is being examined by the station, Adams said.

Milford joined KDKA in 2006 after stints at Fox News and CBS Radio.
