Fruitcake temporarily halts Seattle ferry service, forces evacuation of terminal
SEATTLE -- A suspicious package that forced authorities to shut down and evacuate Seattle's Colman Dock for a while on Tuesday morning turned out to be a "wrapped present located underneath a Christmas tree in the terminal's lobby," according to the Washington State Patrol. The State Patrol said troopers working the ferry terminal with K-9 unites were notified at about 10:10 a.m. Tuesday of a suspicious package in the pedestrian waiting area of the Colman Dock terminal.
