No one was reported hurt and no explosives were found after a threatening note was found on a postal box at the entrance to the Forest Edge condominums, near Lawson Creek on Douglas Island.
Juneau Police Sargeant Scott Erickson says a condo resident discovered the note on the postal box drop slot when they got home Monday afternoon. Erickson says the note will be processed as evidence.
Prior to opening the box, Erickson says it was also x-rayed to determine if there was anything was inside.
Douglas Highway was briefly closed to traffic as the Juneau Police Department’s fully-suited Explosive Ordnance Technician accessed the postal box. The condomonium complex driveway — Forest Edge Access Road — remained closed during the entire incident.
Firefighters were also dispatched to the scene as a precaution.
Erickson says they were called out before four o’clock Monday afternoon and the all-clear was issued shortly after 6:30 p.m.
