One Person Arrested for Sending Suspicious Packages to Military, Government Facilities

Police have arrested a person in Washington state for sending suspicious packages to several military and government facilities.

Several packages went to military installations around the nation’s capital, the NSA and Secret Service headquarters.

At least one tested positive for explosives.

A package sent to the National Defense University at Fort McNair in Washington was flagged as suspicious during the normal screening process.

The package contained materials that tested positive for explosives, including black powder.

It also appeared to have a fuse attached.

The packages included letters, which a law enforcement source describes as threatening and rambling.

The FBI does not believe this case and the Austin explosive cases are related.
