According to WSB-TV Channel 2 Action News Atlanta, a Delta employee (baggage handler) has been arrested and charged with helping another man smuggle guns onto a plane at Atlanta’s Hartsfield Jackson airport. This is crazy, because by this report, a total of 18 known guns ended up in carryon luggage.

Biggest Security Breach In Years

According to the article, “the employee, bypassed TSA security and brought the smuggler the guns. The FBI believes a total of 18 guns bypassed security and ended up on a carryon baggage aboard a Delta Airlines flight to New York.”

The list of guns apparently may include, an AK 47 and an AR 15 but, it is unclear if these made it onto the plane.

“The breach is one of the biggest security breaches in recent years, according to affidavit details.”

Scary stuff, and even scarier that it was an inside job. Look forward to more details emerging on this so that it can be prevented in the future. Glad they caught this guy.
