PORT ANGELES — Authorities found no signs of a bomb in the Clallam County Courthouse or the Armory Square Mall after an unidentified male told a Peninsula Communications dispatcher that bombs were set to go off at the two Port Angeles buildings Friday afternoon.

Both buildings were evacuated shortly after the call was received at 2:01 p.m., Port Angeles police Sgt. Barb McFall said.

Employees were sent home for the day.

East Fourth Street was closed between Lincoln and Peabody streets at the courthouse. Armory Square Mall is a complex of offices at First and Cherry streets in downtown Port Angeles.

The threat was being investigated by the Clallam County Sheriff's Office, Port Angeles police and State Patrol.

“At this point there is no sign of any bombs,” McFall said. “They did a pretty comprehensive search.”
