Armed pair held at Central Command base - CNN.com

(CNN) -- A heavily armed man and woman were in custody Monday after trying to enter the Air Force base that houses the headquarters for U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan without authorization, an Air Force spokeswoman said.

Authorities cordoned off their sport-utility vehicle and searched it using a robot, but no explosives were found, Holt said. Video showed base personnel removing weapons, ammunition and military-style clothing from the vehicle.

The Tampa, Florida, installation houses the headquarters of U.S.Central Command, which runs the U.S. wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, as well as the U.S. Special Operations Command. One gate into the facility was closed, but another remained open, the base command reported.

Since when does a "rifle-type" weapon make you "heavily armed?" Ahnold or Stallone would scoff at this story! :)

Of all the places to try and break into... seems like a good way to get yourself shot for your troubles.
