A passenger at Dallas-Fort Worth international Airport was caught on Thursday morning trying to smuggle a cache of weapons into the facility.

According to Department of Homeland Security representative Luis Casanova, Raymond Ritter had two pistols, three ammunition magazines, eight knives and a hand saw. Casanova said Ritter had divided the items into three carry-ons: a backpack, duffle bag and sleeping bag.

He said the Transportation Security Administration spotted a suspicious item while X-raying the bags. The TSA and local police found the contraband and arrested the man on state charges, Casanova said.

No further details were immediately available.
