Police say guns found on man at Sacramento airport

   SACRAMENTO, Calif. (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.
   A Sacramento County sheriff's spokesman says 45-year-old Harold Waller was
arrested Thursday afternoon after Transportation Security Administration officials
found a gun inside one of his carry-on bags.
   Authorities say when TSA screeners began a more thorough check, they found he
was carrying a loaded gun, and had two other loaded handguns packed in his
carry-on bags.
   Deputies later searched Waller's car and say they found eight more guns, some
of which were loaded.
   Waller, from Circle, Mont., 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. It was unclear whether he has a lawyer.
