Bomb scare in Sterling
At around 8:47, Kenneth Couch, 60, entered the Eastern Loudoun County Sheriff's Office to speak with a deputy. Couch was drunk and said that there may be explosives in the area. A deputy in the area discovered a suspicious package near an electrical transformer next to the LCSO Eastern Station. The Loudoun County Bomb Squad responded to the area, located, accessed and rendered the package, which contained an explosive initiation system, safe.
Couch indicated there were more explosives, but officers from Loudoun, Fairfax and the Virginia State police were unable to find anything during additional searches.
Couch was charged with drunk in public and manufacturing a hoax device. He remains held at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center on no bound, and the case is still under investigation.
