Packages Containing Explosive Material Mailed To White House, CIA, And Military Bases Near Washington D.C.

March 27, 2018

On Monday, March 26, five locations around Washington D.C. reported receiving packages containing explosive materials. The locations included the White House, CIA mail facilities and three military bases including Fort McNair in Washington D.C., the Dahlgren Naval Surface Warfare Center which is about an hour south of D.C., and Fort Belvoir in Fairfax, Virginia.

All of the packages were identified before being opened, and the packages did not detonate. The FBI was able to neutralize the explosive packages and has taken them back to their lab in Quantico to analyze them. One of the packages contained mysterious black powder, and the FBI also found at least one threatening letter.

On Tuesday, someone was arrested in connection with the mysterious packages according to law enforcement. Police are not sure that there are no other packages out there, and they are urging people to be suspicious if they receive a mysterious package. This comes soon after the recent bombings in Austin that terrorized the city for a month.

This is a concerning story, and we know that sometimes we need a reminder of the good in the world at a frightening time like this, so be sure to check out the video below!
