The block between Columbia and 18th and Calvert Street at Lanier/Adams Mill Rd., was blocked off with yellow police tape late this morning into the early afternoon. A posting on the neighborhood mailing list said it was in response to a bomb scare. The Washington Post said it was a suspicious package.
This is the second weird thing to happen on that block in relatively short period. On Friday, the Wells Fargo branch on this block was robbed by a man with a gun, the Washington City Paper reported.
