UPDATE - 11:10AM -  BOSTON (AP & NBC News) -- A law enforcement official briefed on the investigation says a suspect has been taken into custody in the Boston Marathon bombings.  Sources tell NBC that no official arrest has been made.

The official spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Wednesday. The official was not authorized to divulge details of the investigation.

The official says the suspect is expected in federal court in Boston.

Law enforcement agencies had earlier pleaded for the public to come forward with photos, videos or any information that might help them solve the twin bombings that killed three people and wounded more than 170 on Monday.

Investigators circulated information about the bombs, which involved kitchen pressure cookers packed with explosives, nails and other lethal shrapnel. But the FBI said nobody had claimed responsibility.

this report is Bogus, and was deleted by Boston P.D. as of 9pm Eastern this date; witch is way before Nv4 editor or vigilante commenter woke up. Smell the TEA?

WOW-That was quick! Hope they were able to find prints or DNA to be sure they have the right person. Sounds like their methods were kind of a "reach",from a "would it hold up in court" standpoint.
