Loaded gun found in woman's purse at BWI Thursday
LINTHICUM, Md. (WBFF) - Another gun was confiscated at a BWI checkpoint on the morning of June 29.
A Virginia woman told security officials that a .380-caliber, semi-automatic loaded handgun found in her purse had been placed there by her son.
The woman, who is from Kilmarnock, Va., had five bullets in her purse and one bullet in the chamber of the gun.
She was arrested on weapons charges after the gun was seen by the X-ray machine when she put her carry-on items on the conveyor belt.
It's the 16th gun confiscated at BWI so far this year. Last year, 24 guns were brought to the airport.
