Police: Woman had 2 loaded guns at Indianapolis airport


An Indianapolis woman was arrested after she tried to bring two loaded handguns into Indianapolis International Airport, police said.

Maria L. Crutchfield, 56, was stopped at a security checkpoint just before 7 p.m. Saturday after an X-ray machine showed the outline of a gun in her carry-on luggage, police said.

Crutchfield was carrying two loaded handguns -- a .25 caliber black Colt automatic and a 6mm black Browning -- at the very bottom of her bag, police said.

Crutchfield told officers she had forgotten the guns were in her purse when she came to catch a flight from Indianapolis to Baltimore-Washington International Airport.

She also admitted to not having a license for the guns, police said.

Crutchfield was arrested and preliminarily charged with entering a controlled area of an airport with a weapon and carrying a handgun without a license.
