NORTH BEND — A movie theater in this exurban town east of Seattle was evacuated after authorities say a packaged labeled as containing a “highly contagious human substance” was sent there in error.
KOMO reported the package contained a urine sample.
Sgt. Paul Graham with the Snoqualmie Police said the package arrived at the theater late Friday and the theater manager found a box with the labeled liquid inside.
The theater was evacuated, and local streets were closed as hazmat crews responded.
Graham says the package was supposed to have been delivered to a medical clinic in Tacoma. It was unclear how it ended up more than 40 miles away in North Bend.
