Sheriff shares details on Port Hadlock bomb scare

Posted

Some dumbbells are to blame for a bomb scare last week at the Speed Wash & Dry in Port Hadlock.

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office was called to the business near the QFC after someone spotted a suspicious package that had been left in the laundromat just after 6:30 p.m. Monday, July 4.

Someone thought the package was an explosive device, Sheriff Joe Nole said Monday.

A bomb disposal unit from the Washington State Patrol was called in, and Irondale Road was closed to traffic during the incident.

The bomb squad determined the package was not a bomb after it was X-rayed.

“They determined it was not explosives and opened the unsealed box,” Nole said.

Inside the box, officers found dumbbells, a paper-towel holder, sunglasses, a fan, and an electronic game, Nole said.

The items were taken to the sheriff’s office for safekeeping.

Officers attempted to locate the person on the return label of the package, a Port Angeles resident, but were unsuccessful, Nole said.
