TSA at Dallas/Fort Worth Quickly Net Two Guns

Friday, August 8, 2008

Two guns were found within three hours at two checkpoints at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport on July 17.

About 10 a.m. at checkpoint C-31, Transportation Security Officer Joanne Migot saw the image of a handgun in a carry-on bag appear on the X-ray monitor. Later at checkpoint C-21, 200 yards away, a similar situation unfolded for Officer Yvette Holloway.

Both cases involved female passengers, who were arrested by local law enforcement for recklessly attempting to enter the sterile area with a firearm.
