Felon Admits He Tried to Board Plane with Gun at KCI
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A 26-year-old Kansas City man admitted in federal court on Friday that he tried to board a plane at KCI with a loaded handgun.
On December 28, 2011, an x-ray machine operator at the Delta terminal at Kansas City International Airport saw an image of a loaded firearm in Anthony Winn’s carry-on bag. Winn was arrested and searched; officers removed $4,906 from his pants pockets, along with boarding passes to travel one-way from Kansas City, Mo., to Minneapolis, Minn., and then to Tuscon, Ariz.
Police later found more than $26,000 in various pockets of three pairs of jeans in his carry-on bag.
Winn already had several felony convictions, including unlawful use of a weapon, attempted first degree burglary, first degree burglary and second degree burglary.
He could be sentenced up to 10 years in federal prison.
