Lynnwood Police and later Everett Police Bomb Technicians were called to the Lynnwood Permit Center, located at 4114 198th St SW., today (Monday, Nov. 25) to investigate a suspicious package that was left on a table in the center at about 2:20 p.m.
The package was cleared as not harmful at 3:21 p.m., according to Lynnwood Police spokeswoman Lisa Wellington.
“It was an electronic cigarette device that had an extravagant battery back up charger system attached to it,” Wellington said.
A contractor had accidently left the device on the counter. The individual was informed that the device can never be left anywhere in public, Wellington said.
