Officials at Fort McNair evacuated a building after one of the packages was delivered, a spokesman said.
Among the locations where packages were recovered: the Central Intelligence Agency in Langley, Va.; Fort Belvoir, Va.; Fort Lesley J. McNair in Washington; Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling in Washington; and Naval Surface Warfare Center in Dahlgren, Va.
Authorities did not immediately name the man but said he was known to law enforcement.
During screening, the packages were found to be suspicious, although it is unclear what made them suspicious.
Another package was found Dahlgren Naval Air Station in Virginia. It was quickly rendered safe, the military said.
It is possible that further packages were mailed to additional mail processing facilities in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.
It is not clear if the parcels all contained working explosives. According to the Wall Street Journal, some of the packages had letters attached to them, which included "ramblings" written by the mysterious sender. A United States official said a Naval Support Facility in Dahlgren, Virginia, also received a suspicious package and that the FBI is leading the investigation.
Army Lt. Col. Michelle L. Baldanza says the incident is under investigation and the Pentagon was referring all inquiries to the FBI.
