Atlanta, GA (WVEE) — Four people have been arrested this year for attempting to carry weapons into the Fulton county justice center complex.

Fulton County authorities say a 27-year-old Lilburn man tried entering the courthouse with a Smith and Wesson handgun and ammunition in his backpack Jan. 31. Charges against the unidentified man were later dismissed.

The AP also reports that there were two situations on March 13, a 35-year-old Tennessee woman was arrested after security officers found a pink Glock and ammunition in her purse and a 22-year-old Atlanta woman was arrested after security guards found a gun in her purse.

Authorities say another unidentified man who was arrested for carrying a gun into the county courthouse Wednesday has bonded out of jail.
