Seattle Washington – FBI Searching For Suspicious Ferry Passengers

(NTARC) The FBI is asking for the public’s help to identify two men who have been seen acting strangely aboard Washington State ferries recently.

According to federal agents, passengers have seen the men on several occasions exhibiting unusual behavior. The FBI did not say precisely what that unusual behavior entailed.

FBI spokeswoman Robbie Burroughs said the men have been reported by by passengers on several ferry runs and, while the behavior may have been innocuous, investigators would like to talk to the men.

Burroughs said the men appeared to be taking an unusual interest in the workings of the boat, but she would not elaborate.

Passengers and crew members on different runs on separate dates reported the men to authorities.

Anyone who knows the men or there whereabouts are asked to call the FBI at (206) 622-0460.

Additional:

Earlier this month, Washington state ferry employees were told to watch for suspicious passengers after an incident in which someone took some out-of-the-ordinary photos.

Washington State Patrol spokesman Bob Calkins in Olympia said the incident took place last month and he can’t disclose details because it’s still under investigation. He says it led to an internal memo to ferry employees asking them to be more alert.

Calkins says the photo-takers drew attention because they were behaving a little differently than commuters or tourists. He says no officer was available at the time to check them out, so the memo was sent. He says it’s not a warning.

Calkins says the patrol and Coast Guard already provide security for state ferries because they could be a target for terrorism.

  1. I would like to thank our worthless government for routinely scaring us with ” strange people were doing suspicious things regarding something somewhere, be on the lookout! But, we cannot actually tell you any useful information about the strange people or what might be construed as suspicious activity, because then it might leak out that all we were doing was hyping up non-existent threats to get more homeland security tax dollars for no real threats.”

  2. Just as an FYI…Bush is going to be in Seattle on the 27th, so I guess having an ‘ALERT’ like this screaming across the Seattle media before he blows into town JUST FIGURES.
