The woman was detained at a checkpoint located in the northern Jordan Valley, between Mechola and Beit She'an. Security guards manning the checkpoint suspected the woman because she was travelling alone and was not carrying a driver's license or an identification card.


While searching the vehicle, security guards found the rifle and a number of magazines inside a plastic bag concealed near the engine.


The woman claimed the rifle and magazines were placed in the car without her knowledge. A short while after her arrest, the woman's teenage son arrived at the checkpoint and was detained as well.
