KENT -- King County sheriff's deputies evacuated passengers and closed a Kent street after a suspicious bag was found on a Metro bus.
A SWAT team and a bomb squad with two robots responded about 7 a.m. Monday. Nearby businesses were evacuated near Southeast 240th and 104th Southeast.
Buses were rerouted. The air space over the scene was closed to news helicopters.
KOMO reports a robot destroyed the device and officials determined it was left over from an earlier bomb training drill.
