Kathryn Spiropoulos, 53.

A New Jersey school official arrested in May after attempting to carry a gun and a knife through security at Philadelphia International Airport has retired from her job.

Kathryn Spiropoulos, 53, the transportation supervisor for Lawrence Township Public Schools, had been reappointed to the job in April, according to Times of Trenton. She was on her way to Atlanta on May 21 when Terminal D security discovered a Glock .45-caliber handgun with 10 live rounds and a knife shaped like a credit card in her possession. School officials rescinded her appointment and posted a notice advertising her job on June 12

Spiropoulis, of Ewing, does not have a license to carry. She is scheduled for a hearing in Philadelphia Municipal Court on July 10 to face charges of violating the Uniform Firearms Act.
