KING 5 News reports that a 35-year-old Seattle man is under arrest for allegedly sending threatening letters to the Seattle Times. The FBI is also investigating if he was involved in an apparent pipe bomb incident last weekend. No one was injured in the incident, but the events were clearly designed to evoke fear.
In early October, the hazmat team was called to the Seattle Times building in downtown Seattle two days in a row.
