Updated at 8:55 a.m. — ART reports that the scene in front of the county building is now clear and buses are running normally.

Roads are closed in front of the county office building at 2100 Clarendon Boulevard, in Courthouse, while authorities investigate a suspicious envelope.

Police were unable to provide any additional information about the investigation, but a photo of the scene shows the county’s Bomb Squad truck and a Bomb Squad member in full blast gear.

ART bus routes 41, 62 and 77 are delayed due to the closures.

    Somehow, I’m guessing that the Arlington County government building is not Al Queda’s top target…

    • WHAT????!!!!

      Thes, have you heard of domestic terrorism? The Una Bomber? Why don’t you just let the professionals handle this stuff and go back to your TPS reports….

        Sounds like somebody has a case of the Mondays.

      Probably so, but it’s not like Al Queada is the only terrorist group or individual out there, or nutcase. Remember anthrax and the snipers?

      WHAT????!!!! is right. There are other terrorist groups out there — and simple nut jobs with a grudge.

      When the Oklahoma City bombing happened, I knew immediately that it wasn’t the work of Middle Eastern terrorists, because, let’s face it, it was Oklahoma City. Sure enough it was homegrown white-boy terrorists with anti-government mania.

    What’s an envelope?

      It is what we used to put snail mail in.

    Oh, sorry. That was the check for my car sticker.

    Why is the envelope suspicious?

  • MrS

    Maybe they were targeting the CVS across the street?
