Feds charge Mont. man with trying to bring guns on Calif. flight; mother says he was depressed
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) ' Federal officials are charging a Montana man with illegally possessing loaded guns at the Sacramento International Airport.
An FBI affidavit released Monday says Harold Waller told investigators he had no intent to harm anyone when he tried to bring four guns onto a flight to Phoenix.
The affidavit says Waller approached a US Airways ticket counter and asked for a ticket to any destination in Alaska.
Waller was found with a loaded 9 mm handgun in a shoulder holster and a loaded handgun in each of the three carry-on bags at the security checkpoint.
Authorities say Waller does not have an attorney yet.
Waller's mother, Helen Waller, says he works on the family's farm in Montana and went to Sacramento this winter for treatment for depression.
