A Hurdsfield woman about to board a flight at the Bismarck airport on Wednesday was stopped by Transportation Security Administration agents who found a loaded handgun and more than 100 rounds of ammunition in her carry-on bag.

The incident occurred about 5:30 a.m. as the 58-year-old woman was attempting to board a Delta flight, Bismarck Police Lt. Luke Gardiner said. The handgun -- along with three magazines full of ammo and an additional 100 rounds -- was in a padded nylon case that was the same color as the inside of the carry-on bag. The woman told authorities she did not see the case as she packed her carry-on bag, Gardiner said.

The woman was not arrested and was allowed to board the plane. The gun and ammo were turned over to an acquaintance of the woman, Gardiner said.
