Airport spokesman Corey Wilson says the gun was discovered as the woman passed through a security checkpoint about 6 a.m. Friday. The Delta flight to Atlanta on which she was due to be a crew member took off without her.
Wilson says the woman is being held on preliminary misdemeanor charges of carrying a handgun without a permit and entering a controlled area with a weapon.
He did not name the woman.
Wilson says the evidence will be turned over to prosecutors who will determine whether to file formal charges.
