American with explosives on arrested at Oklahoma airport

An explosive device was found in a airpassenger's bag as the individual was passing through a checkpoint, the FBI said Thursday.

Officials have found no apparent connection between Charles Alfred Dreyling Jr. and any terrorist group or activity, said Agent Gary Johnson, an FBI spokesman.

Dreyling, 24, was going through the security checkpoint at Will Rogers World Airport on Wednesday when a Transportation Security Administration employee noticed something suspicious in his bag on the X-ray machine, Johnson said.

Johnson said Dreyling had "an improvised explosive device." He declined to describe it further.

Dreyling, who lives in Oklahoma, had planned to take a Delta Air Lines flight that travels to Philadelphia through Atlanta, airport spokeswoman Karen Carney said.

He was at the Oklahoma County jail on a federal hold and was to appear before a federal magistrate Thursday afternoon, the U.S. Attorney's office said. He could face charges related to possessing an explosive device at an airport, the AP reports.
