Suspicious Vehicle At Aberdeen Proving Ground

Army: Suspicious  vehicle  cleared  at  Aberdeen  Proving Ground

June 29 2016


Officials at the Army's Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland say security forces have cleared a suspicious vehicle that was trying to gain access to the installation.

Spokeswoman Heather Roelker said by telephone Wednesday that the installation returned to normal operations around 12: 15 p.m., about three hours after the situation began to unfold at the Maryland Avenue Gate on Route 715. 

She did not have any details about what prompted the response.

There were no injuries and Roelker says the installation was not on lock down. People were asked to use another gate.

Aerial images from local television stations showed police vehicles by the gate and a tent set up on the shoulder.


Authorities Investigate Suspicious Vehicle At Aberdeen Proving Ground

Emergency personnel have cleared the security gate at the Aberdeen Proving Ground after a suspicious vehicle prompted an investigation.    

A spokesperson with  APG tells WJZ a suspicious vehicle attempted to gain entry on Wednesday morning.

“Since safety and security of the workforce and residents is paramount, all are being advised to avoid the area until the incident is resolved. 

Entry and exit is restricted to the Harford Blvd,” said APG in a statement.

Officials say a Military Working Dog alerted the staff for a potential explosive device around 9:00 a.m.

The area was deemed safe after further investigation.

The vehicle has since been cleared and APG returned to normal operations around 1:00 p.m.


I just spoke to my daughter who told me that one of her co-worker's husband is a security guard at Aberdeen Proving Ground here in Maryland.  

Today it was reported by local news that a suspicious vehicle parked near the base was being investigated. 

The road to the base was closed for a while. 

No one was allowed near the scene.  

The security guard told his wife that bomb sniffing dogs from the Harford County, Maryland Sheriff's department were on the scene and found something that was then disarmed.  

The local media has been "mum" concerning the dogs and what they found. The media simply reported that all is now well.  

This is very frightening to me, as we live only about 8 miles from Aberdeen Proving Ground.  Many of our neighbor's and townsfolk work there. 

We are in a very dangerous situation in this country. Anything could happen at any time.  It is clear that there is a mortal enemy at work - one that we are continuing to downplay and outright ignore.  Lives are at stake. 

Please - everyone, pray before venturing out this holiday weekend, and from now on.  

May Lord Jesus have mercy on all who are His.

If everyone was armed, then the only danger would be to those whom intend to harm others!
