MacDill Air Force Base, Florida (CNN) -- All gates at MacDill Air Force Base in Florida will be open Tuesday after being temporarily closed after a heavily armed man and woman were taken into custody when they tried to enter the facility without authorization, an Air Force spokeswoman said.

They were stopped at a gate at the base that houses the headquarters for U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan early Monday evening after they could not show proper identification, Senior Airman Katherine Holt said. A search of the vehicle after they were detained found military-style uniforms and gear and several "rifle-type" weapons, Holt said.
