The bomb squad and Chelan County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) have reopened E. Johnson Avenue and N. Emerson Street in Chelan following investigation into a ticking item in a trash can.

The investigation determined that the suspicious ticking was coming from two clocks which had been disposed of in the trash can outside of the Chelan Post Office. The threat has been lifted and the CCSO took the clocks for safe keeping.

Thank you to the bomb squad that was called in from Yakima, and thank you to Chelan County Sheriff’s Office for keeping us all safe for what could have been a dangerous threat in Chelan.
