A teddy bear placed at the front door of the Oregon State Police office in Albany proved to be as harmless as a teddy bear. Employees arriving for work Monday thought it might be a bomb. They evacuated the building, cleared the front parking lot of cars and called in the agency's bomb unit.

An X-ray image showed there were nothing dangerous inside the bear.

No decision had been made about what to do with the animal, which by the afternoon was sitting on a counter in the business office.
