Sacramento County Sheriff's deputies arrested a man on suspicion of trying to bring several firearms through a security checkpoint at Sacramento International Airport, according to the sheriff's department.

Harold Waller, 45, was arrested at the security checkpoint at the airport's Terminal A at about 3 p.m. Friday, sheriff's spokesman Jason Ramos said in a news release.

Waller reportedly had a loaded handgun on him and three loaded firearms in his carry-on luggage and eight more firearms in Waller's vehicle, Ramos said. Waller was arrested on suspicion of unlawful possession of a loaded firearm, concealed firearm, unauthorized weapon in a public building and possession of a firearm within a "sterile area" of an airport.
