EVERETT — A text message sent late Tuesday night said a bomb was placed somewhere inside a motel south of Everett.
Police found no explosives, said Courtney O’Keefe, a Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman.
The person who received the text called 911 around 11:30 p.m. A bomb squad from the sheriff’s office, Everett police and the Washington State Patrol was called to the 220 block of 128th Street SW.
Everyone inside the motel was escorted outside. Police dogs and officers searched the building, which they determined was safe.
