ROME, Jun 24, 2013 (UPI via COMTEX) -- Police in Rome say they've arrested a US Airways flight attendant for allegedly trying to bring a disassembled gun onto a flight.
The 60-year-old woman who was only identified by her initials, J.J., was found with a disassembled Sig Sauer revolver and 40 round of ammunition, five of them spent, in her carry-on bag Sunday, the Italian news agency ANSA reported Monday. The gun was detected at the Fiumicino airport security checkpoint.
The woman was scheduled to work a flight from Rome to Charlotte, N.C. She was instead taken to Cicitavecchia prison and charged with possession of an unauthorized firearm.
She allegedly told police she'd brought the gun to Italy from the United States.
From the Italian Media:
(ANSA) - Fiumicino, June 24 - Police arrested a gun-toting 60-year-old flight attendant Sunday at Rome's Fiumicino Airport.
The woman, known only by the initials J. J., was about to board a US Airways Rome-Charlotte flight when Italian border police found a disassembled 40 caliber SIG SAUER revolver in her carry-on luggage. They also found 40 rounds, five of them spent.
Nabbed during pre-boarding security procedures, J. J. told police that she brought the gun to Rome from the US. Charged with possession of an unauthorized firearm, she was taken into custody and transferred to Civitavecchia prison pending an investigation by the local prosecutor's office.
ALPA and the ATA paid for it, pilots helped develop it and then Lee Moak and the ATA absolutely insisted flight attendants be included without additional background checks.
