Update at 10:05 p.m. — The bomb squad “disrupted” the package, resulting in a “boom” that could be heard in the area.

N. Nash Street in Rosslyn has been shut down between Wilson Boulevard and the Golds Gym for a suspicious package investigation.

Some sort of suspicious package or device was spotted on the sidewalk, we’re told.

Police, firefighters and the Arlington County bomb squad are on the scene.

    There have been a lot of suspicious packages around Arlington lately. Mostly outside of 7-11s.

      “The bomb squad “disrupted” the package, resulting in a “boom” that could be heard in the area.”

      That would certainly deter the masturbators who feel a need to “disrupt” their own “packages” in public. Boom, boom, boom.

    Our police need more affordable housing so they could live in the high priced condos along Clarendon Blvd and then they would not freak out over a box of cupcakes. Currently their training only informs them about donuts.

      You make no sense. The bomb squad is the one that handles this (just as it says). The police help with traffic control and whatnot.

        Do any of the local comedy clubs offer comedy lessons? I don’t mean how to be a comic, but how to understand comedy. Many commenters seem unable or unwilling to comprehend that some comments are jokes or riffs on current debates.

          Hey, that’s not funny.

    I see this a lot in DC. It’s homeless people leaving stuff. There needs to be an education campaign for homeless people about the post 9-11 world.

      I was thinking for the other people, where I grew up, a box left behind is… TRASH. Not a reason to call the bomb squad (normally a division of the police or fire department) from their high priced condos.

    There are a ton of suspicious packages in that Gold’s Gym, if you know what I mean.

  • Truthi

    Any update like what it was.

    Who is going to bomb Rosslyn at night? The area couldn’t be any more sparsely populated.
