Authorities have captured at least one suspect allegedly involved in the Boston marathon explosions. An official announcement is expected to be made later today. 

A law enforcement source confirmed that the suspect is in custody and awaiting an appearance in a federal court. However, it’s speculated that police will announce the status of the investigation and have not yet made the arrest.

The Boston Globe reports:

An official briefed on the Boston Marathon bombing investigation said today that authorities have an image of a suspect carrying, and perhaps dropping, a black bag at the second bombing scene on Boylston Street, outside of the Forum restaurant.

Investigators are “very close” in the investigation, said the official, who declined to be named.

That official said authorities may publicize their finding as early as this afternoon.

The same official also said a surveillance camera at Lord & Taylor, located directly across the street, has provided clear video of the area, though it was unclear whether the image of the suspect was taken from that camera.

Authorities planned to brief the media on the progress of the investigation at 5 p.m. today.

A 20-year-old Saudi man was first reported as being involved in the explosion that killed three people ,and injured more than 140. The man was rumored to have received treated at a local hospital before he was taken into custody, reports of which were never confirmed.
