Pentagon Center Shopping Plaza Reopens After Police Investigate Bomb Threat


The Pentagon Center shopping plaza and the roads around it are reopening after police checked out a bomb threat.

No explosives were found by police dogs in a two-hour search.

Arlington police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck said that the complex at 1201 South Hayes St., which includes a Costco, Marshall’s and Best Buy among other stores, was evacuated after the call was received in the shopping center’s central office about 12:30 p.m.

Because of the large area that Arlington police needed to search, Arlington requested assistance from dogs from the Pentagon Force Protection Agency as well, Sternbeck said.
