A Southwest Airlines flight attendant was arrested this week for bringing a load gun to the airport. Transportation Security Administration security found the gun as she was going through the security checkpoint at Buffalo Niagara International Airport.

Details are vague as to if she was working a flight to traveling as a passenger. If she was working a flight, it’s likely that she had the gun on other flights prior to the arrest, as Southwest Airlines doesn’t have a flight attendant base in Buffalo, meaning she’d have had to work on other flights prior to the arrest.

Per the Buffalo News,

A flight attendant for Southwest Airlines was the person arrested Thursday at the Buffalo Niagara International Airport after a loaded firearm was found in her carry-on luggage at a TSA checkpoint, according to a Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority spokeswoman.

The arrest was made public Thursday, but neither the identity of the woman nor her status as a flight attendant were revealed at the time.

The flight attendant was identified as Crystal Reven, 40, of Pearland, Texas, who was charged with criminal possession of a firearm, the NFTA spokeswoman said. Reven was issued a ticket to appear in court at a later date.

Southwest Airlines has issued the following statement:

We are aware of an investigation into a Flight Attendant’s journey through Buffalo-Niagara International Airport this week. We are working alongside appropriate authorities in support of gathering more information.
