Deputy U.S. Marshal Gretchen Fortin told Channel 2 Action News that an employee saw a backpack near a trash can at the entrance of the building.

The backpack and a tote bag were removed from the trash can by a robot and were X-rayed before being opened, according to The Associated Press. Authorities use bomb robots to scan areas for threats.

Streets in the area were blocked for about two hours.

One has to wonder if Muslim terrorists are testing the waters. When you consider the manpower necessary to track even one episode of terror, you get the idea of the real cost of terror.
