Two women cited for guns at SLC airport
Two women were cited Tuesday for trying to carry loaded guns through security checkpoints at Salt Lake City International Airport.
The first woman arrived at the airport about 5 a.m., the Transportation Safety Administration reported. She was carrying a Ruger LC9 pistol loaded with six rounds of 9mm ammunition, said TSA spokeswoman Lorie Dankers. She was accompanying a child to the gate but was not traveling, Dankers said.
The second woman arrived about 8:30 a.m. for a flight to Portland with a loaded KelTec 380, Dankers said.
They are the 23rd and 24th people firearms found this year at Salt Lake International.
