Transcript for Federal Agents Find Guns on Delta Airplane From Atlanta
Thanks very much. And new details about an attempt to smuggle guns on delta airlines. Some guns, some loaded, were found on a flight out of Atlanta. They were part of a trafficking ring. It could be a huge security risk. And Pierre Thomas has more. One arrest has been made. Reporter: It appears it was an inside job. Prosecutors say a delta employee smuggled 18 handguns past security in the airport. They were handed over to a former delta employee inside of a bathroom. From there, the weapons, including seven loaded were slipped into carry on luggage on a plane that flew to New York. It raises serious questions about the vetting of employees and whether there's enough to catch the dirty employees. Several have been charged with or convicted of smuggle guns. We are expected to learn more later today. Not good news for delta around the holiday travel time. Reporter: They're working with authorities and take this matter seriously. Okay, Pierre Thomas, thanks very much.
