|Barrhaven residents gather in front of a mysterious object on a nearby lawn.|
City officials have been sent to the Barrhaven area to study the odd object and try to determine what it is and if it poses an immediate danger to the area and residents. "We'll make sure we take the necessary precautions studying the object, and if it's safe to do so, we will remove it immediately." remarked City Safety Inspector Kevin Newcomb.
The object stands approximately 9 feet high, with a greenish texture and moves slightly when exposed to shifts in wind. Police are warning onlookers to keep a safe distance and to remain indoors until the object can be removed. Some residents fear other such objects might appear in the future and want to know how they can protect their suburban community from what could be an invasive species. "We live here to enjoy the uninterrupted vinyl clad scenery and we don't want that threatened." Barrhaven resident Sheryl Pantree commented before shielding the eyes of her two children away from the unknown object.
