The Washington State Patrol says a lockdown at the state Capitol campus in Olympia has been lifted.

The patrol said in an email alert that troopers conducted a thorough search Wednesday after reports of suspicious noises. The patrol says nothing was found.

The agency says all operations are back to normal. Buildings are no longer on lockdown.

Troopers will maintain an increased presence on the campus.

Police said the state Department of Enterprise had initiated a campus-wide lockdown.

Authorities told people to remain in buildings and asked the public not to come to the campus.
