SEATTLE -- An employee at downtown's Seattle Mystery Bookshop found herself at the center of a brief whodunit Wednesday morning when she arrived at work to find a portion of Cherry Street cordoned off with police tape.
Apparently, someone reported a suspicious package outside the bookshop around 7 a.m. and officers arrived to find a granola bar in an inflated package and a modem card attached by a phone cord. All three items were sitting on top of a piece of white paper.
According to the Seattle Police Department, the Arson/Bomb Squad was called in, and it took them about five minutes to determine the items were harmless.
