Police: Calculator found in suspicious package at downtown bank


SEATTLE - Seattle police discovered a calculator and book in a suspicious package that was delivered to a downtown bank Thursday afternoon.


Police said a suspicious-looking package was delivered to a bank on Third Avenue and University Street around 12:30 p.m.


Employees at the bank called 911 after they felt metal inside of the package.


Officers responded to the location and evacuated the bank.


The Seattle Police Department’s Arson and Bomb Squad brought in a bomb-sniffing dog to see if the package was dangerous.


According to police, the dog didn’t detect any type of explosive in the package and removed it from the bank.


When officers opened the package, they found a book and a calculator inside.


Police said a former employee of the bank borrowed the items, and was returning them in the mail.


Detectives cleared and left the bank.
