ANSWER: Harold Edward Waller, 45, remains in Sacramento County Jail, accused of attempting to board an aircraft with a concealed dangerous weapon.

According to online records, he is scheduled for a status conference June 27 in U.S. District Court in Sacramento.

According to stories in The Bee, Waller was booked for a flight to Phoenix on March 22, with a connecting flight to Anchorage, when Transportation Security Administration employees at a Sacramento International Airport security checkpoint spotted a gun in one of his three carry-on bags.

Waller acknowledged the gun was his and took of his jacket, revealing a loaded 9mm handgun in a shoulder holster, officials said, and handguns were found in two other bags Waller had placed on the X-ray machine.

Waller was arrested by Sacramento County sheriff's deputies. Authorities reported that rifles, handguns and ammunition were found in Waller's car, which he had left at a car dealership in the Foothill Farms area.
