On Sunday, December 22, 2013 about 8 a.m. a US Customs and Border Protection officer discovered a suspicious item outside the CBP office located at the Port of Friday Harbor. The Sheriff’s Office was notified, and in turn the Washington State Patrol Bomb Squad.
The area around the Customs office was evacuated and isolated until the bomb technicians arrived and were able to “render safe” the item, which contained an assortment of electronic parts and wires. No evident explosives were found.
The investigation is continuing
