DURHAM, N.C. (AP) - Sheriff's deputies report they've found nearly 1,300 weapons on people entering the new Durham County Courthouse since it opened in February.

The Herald-Sun of Durham reported (http://bit.ly/HdafMj) that Sgt. Jeff Daughtry said officers have found guns, knives, razor blades, scissors, stun guns and hammers using the metal detectors at the entrance.

Daughtry said 922 people with weapons were denied entrance to the courthouse. He says some other people took the weapons to their vehicles and then were allowed to enter the building.

He says some of those who tried to slip through security were charged with carrying a concealed weapon. He says those who brought items from their jobs, such as a utility knife or hammer were not charged.
