1 person in custody in investigation at Pentagon

Jun 17, 2011 8:26:00 AM - thestate.com
One person was taken into custody early Friday in connection with an investigation into a suspicious vehicle near the Pentagon, authorities said.

In addition, Pentagon police spokesman Chris Layman said one or two other people may have been involved. The car was in bushes near the Pentagon's north parking lot, Layman said.

Police were investigating a suspicious package in the vehicle, said a U.S. official familiar with the investigation who spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation was still underway. The official said police found a suspicious person near Arlington National Cemetery and the person led them to the vehicle, off the road between the Pentagon and the cemetery.

In another incident earlier this week, a motorist found with a gun and what appeared to be a suspicious package near the Pentagon was taken into custody.
