Woman Makes In On To Plane With A Handgun In Her
A 65-year-old woman who reportedly was allowed to board an
airplane at Dallas Fort/Worth International Airport with a pistol
in her purse has been charged with a state felony.
The incident occurred Wednesday morning. Reuters reports that
the woman had a .38 caliber revolver tucked away in her purse.
Airport police had been notified about 0600 that TSA
was looking for someone who had already cleared security but
required secondary screening.
The woman was on an American Airlines flight which had
pushed back and was taxiing when it was called back to the gate.
Authorities searched multiple terminals and airplanes before
finally locating the woman at about 0800 CST. She was charged with
carrying a weapon where prohibited.
In all, 10 flights were delayed an average of 20-25 minutes
while the search was conducted. TSA says it finds about four
firearms per day on passengers at airport checkpoints. Most say
they forgot they were carrying the weapons.
