KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A 26-year-old man has pleaded guilty to charges stemming from having a loaded handgun in his carry-on bag at Kansas City International Airport.
Anthony Winn, of Kansas City, pleaded guilty Friday to having a concealed weapon in his luggage.
Winn was stopped at the airport on December 28 as he tried to board a flight to Minneapolis. Police conducted a search after the screener noticed the handgun. Officers also reported finding about $4,900 in Winn's pants pocket and more than $26,000 in the pockets of three pairs of jeans in the bag.
The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/L3sJun) that Winn admitted in his plea agreement that he knew he had the 9 mm Glock pistol in his bag. X-ray equipment showed the handgun was loaded with 23 live rounds.
