For the second time in a week, a woman carrying a loaded handgun was stopped at the DeKalb County Courthouse and arrested, authorities said Tuesday.
Sheriff’s deputies found a weapon Monday in a purse after stopping Brooke Ingle, a law firm employee, at a public entrance, according to spokesman Sgt. Adrion Bell. Ingle, 27, said she was at the courthouse to file civil documents for Glasser, Currie and Bullman Attorneys at Law, her employer.
Ingle was charged with carrying a weapon in an unauthorized location and taken to the DeKalb County Jail. She was released Monday on $1,000 bond.
On Nov. 28, deputies arrested Yolanda Perdue, 27, after she arrived at the courthouse to file divorce paperwork. Perdue also was carrying a loaded gun inside her purse, according to Bell. She, too, was taken to the county jail.
