Armed Pair Held at Florida Air Force Base


Two “heavily armed” individuals were detained after they reportedly tried to enter MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Florida, early Monday evening without authorization. The man and woman were unable to provide identification, and security found “military-style gear and weapons” in their SUV. The two were taken into custody at the base, where the headquarters for U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan is housed, and the incident remains under investigation. [AP via NYT, CNN]
