The base is home to U.S. Central Command, which runs the U.S. wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Base public affairs officer Senior Airman Katherine B. Holt reports a man and woman were unable to show proper identification Monday evening, and their vehicle was searched. Security found military-style gear and weapons in the sport utility vehicle but no explosives. Holt says she didn't know how many weapons were removed but they were rifle-type.
The suspects names were not released.
The military is investigating and says the base is operating normally.
