Joint Base Andrews in Maryland has given the all-clear after a man approached the main gate on Friday and falsely told guards he had a bomb in his car.

“Following procedure, base security forces personnel shut down the main gate and cleared the area of all personnel,” Zack Baddorf, a spokesman for the 316th Wing at Andrews, said late Friday. “The individual was taken into custody and was questioned by base security forces and partner law enforcement agencies.”

The man, a civilian with no military affiliation, arrived around 4:45 p.m. Friday.

Bomb-sniffing military dogs also swept the vehicle.
