Governor's office evacuated after woman drops off suspicious package

The Governor’s Office was evacuated Monday afternoon after a woman dropped off a suitcase in the lobby and said it was for Washington Governor Jay Inslee. She also dropped off a computer tower at the Temple of Justice.

The woman's car was stopped at the Victory Circle and she was held for questioning. Hours after the incident, prosecutors declined to press charges and the woman was released. 

Staff return to their offices around 2:30 p.m. after investigators deemed the campus safe.
