EVERETT, Wash. (AP) — Police believe whoever left a pressure cooker at an Everett gas station Wednesday intended to instill fear on 9-11 with a replica of a Boston Marathon bomb.
Police say someone drove up to a gas pump at a Fred Meyer store on the Bothell-Everett Highway about 5:45 a.m. and placed the pressure cooker on the ground before driving away. An employee called 911.
A bomb squad detonated the pressure cooker about 8 a.m. to determine it contained no explosives.
Everett police are reviewing surveillance video and asking for tips to help find the hoaxer.
