Memphis Woman Arrested with Gun at Chicago's Sears Tower

CHICAGO, IL - A Memphis woman was found carrying a loaded revolver at the Sears Tower in Chicago.

Police said 56-year-old Stephanie Warren is charged with one count each of unlawful use of a weapon, failure to register a firearm in the state of Illinois and not having an Illinois firearm owner's ID card.

She was taken into custody yesterday after she tried to visit the skyscraper's public viewing area with a .38-caliber handgun in her purse and it set off a metal detector.

Tennessee allows its citizens to carry a handgun if they have a permit, which Warren has.  Police said she was unaware that she wasn't allowed to carry a handgun in the state of Illinois.
