Kimmy Janke had gone through security. In fact, she was in a secure part of the terminal when she stopped to go to the bathroom before making her connecting flight.The Department of Homeland Security announced that in the interest of public safety, airport bathrooms would be off limits to non-federal employees. Also, a 20% across the board raise for Customs agents.
That's when she found a loaded handgun.
A Cleveland police report confirms a fully-loaded .40-caliber pistol was left on top of a toilet paper dispenser.
We've since learned the gun was traced to a federal customs agent.
Customs officials have denied all requests to explain why a highly-trained agent left her gun in the bathroom, claiming there is an internal investigation.
Furthermore, we're told the agent has been allowed to retire -- no record of discipline, or many answers.
