Authorities have charged a member of the US military who was arrested after trying to go through a security checkpoint at a Texas airport with explosives in military-grade wrapping, the FBI said.

Trey Scott Atwater, 30, was stopped at security at the Midland International Airport about 9 am on Saturday. Mike Martinez, an FBI spokesman, said on Sunday.

Atwater is being held at the Midland County jail and has been charged with trying to bring explosives onto an airplane.

He will remain in custody at least until his arraignment on Tuesday, given that the courts are closed on Monday for the holiday, Martinez said.

Atwater and his wife and family had been visiting relatives in the area and were on their way back to his base in North Carolina, according to local media reports.
