TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - The military says two heavily armed people

are in custody after trying to enter MacDill Air Force Base outside

of Tampa.

The base is home to U.S. Central Command, which runs the U.S.

wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Base public affairs officer Senior Airman Katherine B. Holt

reports a man and woman were unable to show proper identification

Monday evening, and their vehicle was searched. Security found

military-style gear and weapons in the sport utility vehicle but no

explosives. Holt says she didn't know how many weapons were removed

but they were rifle-type.

The suspects names were not released.

The military is investigating and says the base is operating

normally.
