Woman Arrested For Trying To Bring Gun On Plane At Midway

CHICAGO (STMW) — A 61-year-old Chicago woman has been charged with trying to take a gun onto a plane at Midway International Airport Thursday morning.

Elaine Robertson, of the 0-to-100 block of East 121st Street, was charged with attempting to board an aircraft with a weapon, police said.

A Transportation Security Administration agent spotted the gun in a carry-on bag as it went through an X-Ray scanner Thursday morning at Midway Airport, police.
Robertson told police the gun was hers but that she did not realize it was in the bag.

She was arrested about 8:30 a.m. and appeared in bond court Friday, police said. A judge set bond at $75,000.

The TSA tells WBBM Newsradio that agents find weapons about four times a day at U.S. airports — a reason why travelers should always check their luggage thoroughly before leaving for the airport.

      She probably needs to pack when walking in her ‘hood for protection from marauding negros. Hopefully just an honest mistake on her part……………………if not, to jail with her!!!

        @Hoth, Your comment has nothing to do with the above story. You are abusive and out of line! And show some damn respect for Mr. Yard Ape!

        POS APE, One would think extra exclamation points at the end of your sentences would make a stronger point. Not so. It merely shows how white trash you really, really REALLY are. Not to mention a royal jag.

    Hoth Industries. Why do you insist on raining on everybody’s parade? Join the party, there will always be a neverending supply of NE@ROES committing various crimes.

    Besides it’s Friday night and you know what that means? The weekend is here and it’s time forrrrrr….(drum roll please)…..THE NE@RO LOTTERY!!!

    Taking the warmer weather and daylight savings time into consideration I think I’ll go with 11 and 4. But as always, even if I’m wrong, we can’t help but win.

    • THEE Yard Ape

      @Leroy – this half a f a g hoth will never get it. For the record I’m going with 10 & 6. As always, we hope those numbers are reveresed. Good luck to all!!!

      btw- watch those exclamation points, it seems to p! ss off the mouthy little b! tch!!!!

    • German Leprechaun

      I feel the excitement already…

  • German Leprechaun

    She’s HOT!!!!! I want her phone number…

  • Just Axin

    Leeberg- I think Vegas should get involved in this one. It feels like there’s more pent up anger than ever! Can’t wait till we tally the #s Monday (although I’m thinkin you’re looking at the glass as half full with those numbers, but I’m willing to work with you).
    PS: On a side note, I keep seeing that pic of Miley at the bottom and s h i t, there’s just something about that one! Where’s Lyndia when I need her!
