ARLINGTON, Va. | The Pentagon City Metro station has reopened after officials determined that a suspicious package at the station did not contain a bomb.

Metro spokeswoman Cathy Asato says Metro Transit Police investigated the incident which started about 5:30 p.m. Saturday when a caller said there was a bomb in a package at the Arlington station.

Trains were turned around on either side of Pentagon City on the blue and yellow lines. Metro set up shuttle bus service between L’Enfant Plaza and Crystal City and between Arlington Cemetery and Crystal City.

Asato says Metro resumed normal service around 7:40 p.m. Riders may still experience some delays because of the large crowds at the cherry blossom festival and attending a Washington Nationals game.
