DOUGLAS, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say a Douglas man is accused of trying to cross into Mexico with an M-4 carbine strapped to his body.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers doing routine outbound inspections at the Douglas crossing stopped the man last Saturday.

The officers say they discovered the rifle taped to the sides of the man’s body in two sections.

The rifle is commonly used by the U.S. military.

It was seized and the 21-year-old man was turned over to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.

The name of the man hasn’t been released.
