Published:
SEATTLE -- The suspicious device destroyed by an FBI bomb squad outside the downtown Seattle FBI building appeared to be a flashlight with a blinking red light.
Spokeswoman Ayn Dietrich says it was not explosive or hazardous and no threat had been made to the agency.
The suspicious device was spotted by building guards about 2 a.m. Monday. Seattle police closed streets around the Abraham Lincoln Building at Third and Seneca until the device was destroyed around 5 a.m. by the bomb squad.
The building is not marked as an FBI field office and there's no indication whether the device was left on the sidewalk accidentally or intentionally.
