I just witnessed a man in a kevlar Hurt Locker suit in Thomas Circle. Is this a credible threat?

My sister reported the suspicious package. She sits next to a ground-floor window, and saw a homeless person set some bags next to a rolling trash can right next to the building and then walk away. She thought this was strange, so she reported it to building security, who called the police. Most likely nothing, but given the attempted bombing in NY, they're not taking any chances.
