Suspect Arrested in Connection With Suspicious Packages Sent to Military Bases

On 03.27.18 11:58 AM posted by Henry Rodgers

Police on Tuesday arrested a suspect they said is connected with suspicious packages found at military bases in the metropolitan Washington area.

The suspect, who was not identified initially, was expected to appear in court Tuesday after*suspicious packages*were left at Fort Belvoir, Fort McNair, Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling, and the Naval Surface Warfare Center, CBS News*reported.

One package tested positive for gun powder and also had a fuse. Another contained a circuit board and a vial filled with an unidentified liquid.

Several packages reportedly*contained letters, which one official described to NBC News as “disturbing.”

The FBI is in possession of the packages and is trying to determine whether they could have exploded. It was unclear how agents found the suspect in what officials called an ongoing investigation.

“The FBI responded to multiple government facilities today for the reports of suspicious packages,” the bureau said in a statement. “Each package was collected for further analysis by the FBI.”

Officials*told*Fox News Channel that they fear more suspicious packages could still be out there.
