A Salvadoran man was arraigned Tuesday after a $1-million scanning device being tried out at San Francisco International Airport found guns and ammunition hidden in his boombox, authorities said. Miguel Gallegos, 40, was arrested by airport police after his luggage passed through a thermal neutron analysis unit, airport spokesman Ron Wilson said.
