TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Two heavily armed people were detained after
reportedly trying to enter MacDill Air Force Base without
authorization.

The MacDill public affairs office reports that a man and woman,
whose names were not released, tried to gain unauthorized access to
base early Monday evening.

The man and woman were unable to show proper identification, and
their vehicle was inspected. Security forces found military-style
gear and weapons in the sport utility vehicle.

The base's fire department and explosive ordnance disposal units
were dispatched, but no explosives were found.

The individuals were taken in custody.

The incident remained under investigation.

The base's public affairs officer said no other information was
available.
