Man sentenced for packing gun in carry-on bag at KCI

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - 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.
