The Puyallup Department of Corrections office at 405 W. Stewart Ave. was evacuated Monday afternoon while police investigated a bomb threat, said Puyallup Capt. Scott Engle.
An unknown woman reported the bomb threat in a phone call. She called from a blocked number and sounded intoxicated, said Engle.
Officers had to take the necessary precautions and evacuated the DOC facility around 10:50 a.m., plus two other non-related buildings nearby. A bomb dog and investigators searched the building and parking lots but no explosives were found.
Employees were allowed back into the building around 12:30 p.m. after investigations concluded. There was no traffic impact or road closures.
The incident is under investigation by the Puyallup Police Department.
