Rockville Metro Station reopens after church bomb scare

| June 13, 2011

The Rockville Metro Station has reopened following a bomb scare at the station Monday morning.

Around 9:50 a.m., train service resumed at the station hours after police investigated a bomb threat there. Service at all affected stations have also been restored.

Metro spokesperson Dan Stessel says police began investigating the incident shortly after 7:30 a.m., which has disrupted Red Line service in both directions.

Stessel says a woman on a train said she had an explosive device. The woman has since been arrested, ABC7 reports. Authorities haven't charged the suspect and she is currently undergoing a mental health evaluation.

Metro officials believe the woman was on her way to blow up St. Mary's Catholic Church in Rockville.
