Officers will start random bag inspections on the sprawling Washington subway system, the Washington Metro Transit Police said on Thursday, a week after a man was arrested for making bomb threats to the rail system.
Metrorail police officers plan to randomly select bags before passengers enter subway stations and they will swab them or have an explosives-sniffing dog check the bags, according to the Metro police.
There is "no specific or credible threat to the system at this time," Metro said
a week after a man was arrested for making bomb threats to the rail system.
Passengers who refuse to have their bags inspected will be denied entry into the subway system.
