Suspicious Device Found At ISP Headquarters; Suspect On The Loose

Posted: Updated:
COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho - A suspicious device was found Thursday afternoon in the Idaho State Police Headquarters in Coeur d'Alene. The building has been evacuated and police are investigating. The Spokane Bomb Squad Team will also be assisting in the investigation.

According to KHQ's Gabe Cohen the bomb threat was a false alarm. The plastic bag contained a couple of phones and some gibberish notes. Police are still looking for the suspect.

A male walked up to the front desk at ISP and left the device on the counter. Employees tried to ask the man questions, but he would not respond. After leaving the device he left on foot east from the building toward Hwy 95. He was seen later on a City Link Bus and got off the bus at Riverstone.

Officers have described the suspicious male that dropped off the device. He is described as being in his late 20's to early 30's, has dark hair, medium build and approximately 5'9". He was wearing a black T-shirt (could be a tank top), tan shorts, black baseball cap, black bandana and small framed glasses. Police say he could possibly be Hispanic.

Anyone with information is asked to call Coeur d'Alene Police at 208-769-2320

As soon as we more information we will update this story.
