Authorities say a man has been arrested in the Baltimore area for plotting to blow up a military recruitment center in Catonsville, Md.
Marcia Murphy, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney's Office in Baltimore, says the individual was attempting to use a car bomb to blow up the recruitment center -- only to find out that the bomb was fake.
Murphy says law enforcement officers had been monitoring him for months, and that the public was never in danger.
The attempt follows several shootings at military sites in Northern Virginia in the last two months. But Murphy says there is no indication that this incident is linked to those shootings.
She says the man arrested is a U.S. citizen and is due in court Wednesday afternoon.
