Breaking: Van Filled With 1,000 Gallons Of Gasoline Found In Downtown Baltimore Parking Structure Ahead Of Trump’s Visit

A large area of downtown Baltimore was evacuated on Monday after a van filled with 1,000 gallons of gasoline was found in a parking garage — just days before President Donald Trump is scheduled to visit the city.

President Trump will be attending the 2019 House Republican Conference Member Retreat in the city on Thursday, less than one mile from where the van was found.

Police have confirmed that there was no bomb inside the vehicle.

Police were called to the parking garage of 100 E. Pratt St., where the T. Rowe Price office is, around 11 a.m. on Monday morning about the suspicious vehicle.

“After several hours of investigating a suspicious vehicle, no bomb was detected,” Baltimore Mayor Bernard C. “Jack” Young tweeted. “We are currently in the process of conducting precautionary sweeps in an effort to ensure public safety. These sweeps are expected to take several hours.”

Mayor Young asked that people remain outside the evacuated area and find alternate transportation to get home. He said that he will send out an update when people are able to pick up their vehicles.

No motive or explanation for the vehicle has been announced at this time.

The city police are being assisted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

BREAKING: SECOND SUSPICIOUS VAN  Filled With Hundreds of Gallons of Gasoline Found in Baltimore County Ahead of GOP Retreat

The Baltimore County Fire Department has reported that they are on the scene of a second suspicious van carrying 660 gallons of gasoline, hours after one holding 1,000 gallons was found in a parking structure .8 miles from where the House GOP is scheduled to host their retreat on Thursday.

The fire department tweeted that no explosives or hazards were found and that it appears to be related to a theft.

The department is clearing the area and has not stated whether or not there is any connection to the van found earlier in the day.
