A man was arrested after he tried to take four loaded guns through a security checkpoint at Sacramento Airport in the US and is being held without bail, the sheriff's office said.
The suspect, Harold Waller, 45, was arrested on Thursday afternoon at Sacramento Airport after Transportation Security Administration officers at a checkpoint found a firearm inside a carry-on bag, the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department said in a statement.
Further checks showed Waller was carrying a loaded handgun and had three loaded firearms in his carry-on bags, it said.
Sheriff's deputies searched his car at an off-site parking lot and turned up eight more firearms, several of them loaded.
The statement did not specify the types of weapons.
Waller faces charges including unlawful possession of a loaded firearm, unlawful possession of a concealed firearm, possession of an unauthorised weapon in a public building and possession of a firearm within a sterile area of an airport, the sheriff's department statement said.
