atwater treyxx Midland Soldier Found With Explosives Due In Court

MIDLAND (AP) - A member of the U.S. military allegedly found with explosives in his airport luggage on New Year’s Eve is expected to make his first court appearance.

Trey Scott Atwater was expected to be arraigned Tuesday in federal court. Authorities say the 30-year-old tried going through a security checkpoint at Midland International Airport in Texas with explosives in military-grade wrapping.

Atwater has been charged with trying to bring explosives onto an airplane. Relatives have not spoken out since his arrest Saturday or returned multiple phone messages for comment.

Atwater and his family had been visiting relatives and were headed back to his base in North Carolina. Federal authorities handling the case have declined to reveal how many explosives were in the bag or provide details on Atwater’s military record.
