A man who claimed to have a bomb in his truck outside the Library of Congress on Capitol Hill Thursday has surrendered to authorities, ending an hourslong standoff which prompted multiple buildings near the Capitol to be evacuated.
Capitol Police confirmed on Twitter that the suspect, Floyd Ray Roseberry, 49, of Grover, North Carolina, is in custody.
After searching and clearing the vehicle, the U.S. Capitol Police said in a statement later Thursday, “a bomb was not found,” but “possible bomb making materials were collected from the truck.”
Investigators are still on the scene, they said, but added that they’ve now determined the area is safe.
“Our investigators are working closely with the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia to determine the charges,” they said.
