Prosthetic leg prompts lock down in Wa.
BELLINGHAM, Wash. — The woman suspected foul play was afoot. She was half right.
The building was locked down as police conducted a floor-by-floor search. When no suspect was found, police evacuated the building and the woman who reported the incident spotted the office worker who had been carrying the prosthetic leg, The Bellingham Herald newspaper reported.
"Everyone did everything right," Doll said. "Like we hoped, it turned out go be a good situation."
During the lockdown, a U.S. Customs and Border Protection helicopter patrolled the area to check the building's rooftop.
