Woman Arrested for Bringing Gun to Court: Deputies

Deputies said a 19-year-old woman was arrested Thursday after she tried to bring a gun into a Santa Cruz courtroom.

The woman, identified as Brisa Santillan, was arrested on suspicion of carrying a loaded firearm, bringing a firearm into a courthouse and child endangerment.

Deputies said Santillan entered the Santa Cruz County Courthouse at 9:20 a.m. with her 6-month-old child to visit the child's father in court.

Security officers screening visitors at the courthouse entrance found a loaded .25 caliber pistol in Santillan's purse, according to deputies.

The child was placed with Child Protective Services.
