QUANTICO, Va. (WJLA-ABC7) -- The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has confirmed they've responded to a suspicious package that was expected to arrive at a post office in the town of Quantico Thursday.

Officials say they received notification of the package before it arrived and bomb technicians intercepted it at the post office. The post office where the package was intercepted is within the gate of the Marine Corps Base at Quantico, but not on the base, the FBI clarified.

The package has been transported to a facility for further analyses.

On Wednesday a suspicious package was sent to a government mail facility in Northeast Washington and was later determined to have been sent by Thanh Cong Phan, 43 --- the same man arrested in the Seattle area and accused of sending several packages to installations and government facilities throughout the D.C. area.
