Metro suspends rail service in part of D.C. for police investigation


Service on Metro’s Orange and Blue lines was suspended Monday morning in part of downtown D.C. because of a police investigation into a substance that was found, officials said.

At about 9:50 a.m., Metro tweeted that rail service was suspended between the Federal Center SW and Stadium-Armory stations. Officials said the police investigation was in the area of Eastern Market.

The Silver Line is operating only between the Wiehle-Reston East and Ballston stations, officials said. Commuters should transfer to the Orange or Blue lines to continue trips to downtown Washington.

Doug Buchanan, a spokesman for the D.C. fire department, said an emergency call was made after someone found white powder on an elevator at Metro Center. He said a similar find — but not white powder — was made at the Eastern Market station.

Still being paranoid about white powder. White powder can really ruin a commute. Hope this is sorted out before the afternoon commute.
