Discovery of bong delays ferry service

‘This bong threat was legitimate.

The FBI has confirmed that a suspicious package that idled one of the largest ferries in the Washington state fleet for about an hour Wednesday morning was actually a water-pipe typically used for smoking marijuana.

“Someone found a bong,” said David Gomez, FBI assistant special agent in charge. [..]

State Patrol Sgt. Craig H. Johnson would only say the device was a “nonhazardous, nonexplosive item,” adding investigators carried it off the ferry for further examination.

No arrests were made and no identified individuals were being sought, but “we’d like to find the person who left it there,” Johnson said.’
