The office of Washington State Governor Jay Inslee was evacuated on Monday afternoon after a woman dropped off a suitcase and ran out of the building before climbing into her Mercedes and driving off, where she was boxed in less than 100 feet later.
Bomb Squad officers from Pierce County and the Washington State Patrol responded around 2:30 pm. The Governor’s office was evacuated as a precaution while the package was opened. It was found to contain dried food.
She was later released on account of the Prosecutor’s Office dropping charges.
