Authorities have charged a member of the U.S. military arrested after trying to go through a security checkpoint at a Texas airport with explosives in military-grade wrapping.

The FBI says the suspect is 30-year-old Trey Scott Atwater.  He was stopped at Midland International Airport about 9 a.m. Saturday.

FBI spokesman Mike Martinez said Sunday that Atwater is at the Midland County jail and charged with trying to bring explosives onto an airplane. He will remain in custody at least until his arraignment Tuesday.
