City of Midland spokeswoman Tasa Watts said Saturday she had no information on the suspect, who was taken into custody by the FBI. An FBI spokesman did not immediately return a phone call from The Associated Press.
Watts says the explosives were found as the man was going into a terminal at Midland International Airport.
She says the incident happened shortly before 9:30 a.m. Saturday. A sweep was done and the airport terminal was cleared, and normal operations have resumed.
