SACRAMENTO (CBS/AP) — A Montana man is being held without bail after authorities say he tried to bring four guns past a security checkpoint at Sacramento International Airport.

Sacramento County sheriff’s spokesman Jason Ramos says 45-year-old Harold Waller was arrested around 3 p.m. Thursday after Transportation Security Administration officials found a gun inside one of his carry-on bags

Ramos says when TSA screeners began a more thorough check, they found he was carrying a loaded gun, and had two more loaded guns packed in his carry-on bags.

Ramos did not provide the caliber of the guns, but said they were semi-automatic handguns.

After Waller was arrested, deputies searched his car and and say they found eight more guns, some of which were loaded.

Waller, from Circle, Montana, was trying to board a US Airways flight to Phoenix.

He was booked on suspicion of unlawful possession of a concealed firearm and other charges.

    There’s gotta be something missing in this story. I doubt someone that stupid could even successfully operate a car well enough to get to the airport.
