DETROIT (WKZO) -- A man from Saudi Arabia is being detained after he was arrested over the weekend at Detroit Metropolitan Airport when authorities found he was carrying a pressure cooker and an altered passport.

A criminal complaint claims Hussain Al Khawahir first told customs officials he was bringing the pressure cooker to his nephew at the University of Toledo because he couldn't buy one in the United States, then said his nephew had bought one in America before, but it broke after he used it the first time.  The complaint also states a page had been removed from Al Khawahir's passport.

Al Khawahir is charged with knowingly using an altered passport and making a false statement to a Customs and Border Protection officer to gain entry into the United States.
