A suspicious box inside a Chase Bank branch in northwest Portland led to evacuations in the area Monday morning.
Portland police first responded to the bank at 1035 N.W. Lovejoy St. at 9:33 a.m.
After an initial examination of the area, officers called in the Metropolitan Explosives Disposal Unit to investigate.
The bank and other business nearby evacuated while police responded. All traffic is closed from 10th to 12th avenues, and from Kearney to Marshall streets.
The suspect who left the box was described as white, 45 to 50 years old, 5'10" tall and 180 to 190 pounds with a scruffy face. He wore a heavy backpack and a beanie cap. He was last seen walking northbound on Northwest 11th Avenue.
After investigating, police found the box contained clothing, papers and garbage.
