Suspicious object at Klahowya high school not dangerous, police say

The object, which police determined to be a battery for a remote control toy, sent the school into lockdown mode Friday morning.

BREMERTON – A suspicious object brought to Klahowya Secondary School on Friday morning was determined to not be dangerous, police said.

The Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a suspicious object around 9:50 a.m., spokesperson Scott Wilson said. The item had black and red wires attached to it and the word “Dynamite” printed on it, Wilson said.

A student, who had found the object outdoors, reportedly brought it to the school principal’s office. The office was evacuated and the school went into lockdown mode.

A Washington State Patrol bomb squad officer was called to the scene. He x-rayed the object and determined it to be safe.

Wilson said the device appeared to be a battery for a remote control toy, and that “Dynamite” was a brand name.

“They did the right thing. They followed protocols,” Wilson said.

Police left the scene around 11:45 a.m. after it was determined there was no threat.
