On Monday, several suspicious packages were sent to Fort Belvoir, Virginia. Packages were also sent to the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Dahlgreen, Virginia and the Central Intelligence Agency in Langley, Virginia. Buildings were evacuated and an Army bomb squad was bought in. The bomb squad confirmed that the package contained explosive deposits. There have been other instances of package bombs being left at homes in Texas, and killing two people and injuring many more.
Yesterday, a man from Washington state, was finally arrested for allegedly sending the packages to the military sites. The suspect is 43-year-old, Thanh Cong Phan. He has been known to send rambling letters to government officials in the past. Officials believe that he suffers from a mental disorder. The investigation continues.
