TAMPA, FL (WFLX) - Air Force officials released the names of the two people who tried to get into MacDill Air Force Base on Monday. Specialist Christopher Paul Kilburn of Kansas and his civilian companion, Micah Noel Goodier who's from Palm Beach County.

Officials say man, who was AWOL at the time, and the woman had three rifles, three handguns and loads of ammunition in their sport utility vehicle when they tried to enter the base.

Investigators say this is not an attempted terrorist act, but have not explained why they were trying to drive in with fraudulent military ID's and a cache of weapons.

The base was already on edge after a FBI agent fatally shot a veteran at the base last month after an altercation.

Fox 29 spoke to Micah Goodier's brother Tuesday night via Facebook. Jace Goodier says his sister, who hails from West Palm Beach, has been released to the custody of her husband.

He did not know what she was doing with that man who is now being charged with desertion.

He also has no idea why she would try to break into an Air Force base.
