(Newser) – A heavily armed man and woman were taken into custody last night after trying to gain unauthorized access to the Florida base that houses US Central Command. The pair were stopped at a gate at MacDill Air Force Base after they failed to show the proper ID, CNN reports. A search of their SUV uncovered weapons, ammunition, and military-style uniforms. Authorities haven't said if the two tried to use fake IDs to gain access to the base.
