Officials in Maryland have charged a 70-year-old woman with having a gun in her carry-on luggage at Baltimore Washington International-Thurgood Marshall Airport.
Maryland Transportation Authority Police Sgt. Kirk Perez said the .38-caliber gun was found Wednesday just before 9 a.m. when the woman was traveling through airport security.
Perez said the woman — Glen Burnie resident Jane Hoover — apparently stored the weapon in the bag and forgot it was there. Perez said she was arrested but later released and was cooperative with police.
