Ticking package at West Linn Post Office deemed non-threatening

Device was a metronome, not a bomb

A suspicious, ticking package found at the West Linn Post Office this morning was turned out to be a non-threatening metronome with its battery intact, according to police.

West Linn Police Sgt. Neil Hennelly said that officers were called to the building, located at 5665 Hood St., Jan 5 at 6:55 a.m. and proceeded to close off the area. The Metro Bomb Squad then examined the package and found the device.

'If you are mailing a package that contains a battery-operated device that makes noise, it is a good idea to remove the battery,' Hennelly said.

The post office is now open.
