KANSAS CITY — A 26-year-old man has been sentenced to six years in federal prison for having a loaded handgun in his carry-on bag at Kansas City International Airport.
Anthony Winn of Kansas City was sentenced Wednesday for having a weapon in his luggage.
Winn was stopped at the airport on Dec. 28, 2011, 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.
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.
