STAFFORD, Va. (AP) - Police activity has stopped Virginia Railway Express service on a portion of a line.

The rail service issued an alert around 7:45 a.m. Tuesday saying the Fredericksburg-bound rain 312 had stopped at Leeland Road “due to a police activity,” with a later train, 314, stalled behind it.

Around 20 minutes later, VRE advised riders to find alternate transportation and said it would dispatch buses. VRE said around 8:30 a.m. that northbound train 314 would likely resume service soon.

VRE had three buses en route to Brooke Road, the next station after Leeland Road on the Fredericksburg line. The railway service also opened the Metro Option, which allows VRE customers to use Metrorail at no additional charge.

The nature of the police activity has not been specified.
