A Little Rock woman was arrested Friday after authorities found a gun in her purse as she attempted to go through the security checkpoint at the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport, police said.
Pamela Stamp, 30, was taken to the Pulaski County jail. She faces a charge of carrying a weapon, a Class A misdemeanor, which carries a possible sentence of up to one year in jail and a fine of up to $1,000.
According to a Little Rock Police Department arrest report, a Transportation Security Administration worker noticed a gun in the purse as it was X-rayed about 6 a.m. Friday.
"I asked Stamp if the purse was hers and then asked if there is anything in the purse I should know about," police wrote in the report. "Stamp said a gun was in the side pocket. This officer advised Stamp she was under arrest."
Stamp was listed as an inmate at the jail with bail not yet set at 9 a.m.
Several passengers have been arrested with weapons in their carry-on luggage in recent years at the airport, including one case in November.
