The Pentagon police have given the “all-clear” after a “suspicious object” was found by an officer early Tuesday morning.

A Pentagon Force Protection Agency police unit found the object at approximately 6:30 a.m. Tuesday, and officers then cordoned off all vehicle and pedestrian traffic from the area.

The Hazardous Device Unit within the PFPA responded to the incident, and “the object was rendered safely at about 6:50 a.m,” according to a statement from the department.
