Officials say more lenient screening procedures for airline employees at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport enabled a Delta Air Lines flight attendant to carry a gun onto the first leg of round-trip flight from Atlanta to Indianapolis.

Airport screeners in Indianapolis found a handgun in Amber Robillard’s purse when she showed up for her assignment on a return flight to Atlanta on June 4. The 39-year-old woman was detained and charged with a misdemeanor for having a 9 mm Glock, with a full magazine of 10 bullets and a holder, in her carry-on luggage.
