Man, 80, had knife and gun at Hillsborough County Courthouse, deputies say

TAMPA — An 80-year-old Tampa man was detained at the Hillsborough County Courthouse on Monday afternoon after a security guard saw a loaded pistol in his belt.

The man had entered the courthouse a short time earlier, deputies said, but stepped from the line after a guard told him he couldn't bring in a pocketknife. Donald Koranek left to put the knife in his vehicle and returned at 3:45 p.m. He removed his jacket for X-ray examination, exposing the gun.

Koranek told a guard he has a concealed weapons permit, but deputies detained him and seized the weapon. They say they will refer the case to the State Attorney's Office.
