“Suspicious item” closes Seattle’s Third Avenue for two hours

 Third Avenue near University Street in downtown Seattle was closed for about two hours Monday evening while police examined what was reported as a suspicious package.

Once the item was examined and determined to be harmless, the area was reopened to traffic.

Seattle Police Det. Jeff Kappel said the call came in at 6:39 p.m. that a suspicious item had been placed in a “public trash disposal.”

Arson and bomb squad investigators responded, and were able to determine through a  scan that the item was not dangerous, Kappel said, without elaborating on what was found.

Traffic through the area resumed about 8:30 p.m.
