A suitcase left near a net shed at Fishermen’s Terminal late last night drew both Seattle Police and the Port of Seattle Police bomb squad, closing traffic near the Emerson overpass at 15th Avenue West.
A hardshell suitcase was leaning against net shed No. 11 at the terminal and Port police were dispatched. Seattle Police closed traffic at all ends of the terminal while the port’s bomb squad examined the case. The squad used x-ray equipment and found the case full of wires and tubing and batteries. But the case was no threat, said Port spokesman Peter McGraw.
“It had the earmarks of something that would indicate it as a device,” McGraw said. “But it was no threat to anybody.”
