    A suspicious package which prompted an evacuation of the Federal Bureau of Investigation building Monday afternoon was filled with poker chips, according to police.

    Police were called to the State Street building at 12:06 p.m. after security guards at the facility reported the discovery of a "smaller than average silver-colored case" sitting in the area of Wall and Orange streets, according to Officer Joseph Avery. The building was evacuated as a precautionary measure.

    A bomb squad was called to the scene. The building has since reopened.

    Suggest many more in the area should do the same.. brave soldiers

      So funny. If this was the intentional result of whoever left the case, it's f*ing brilliant. I'm surprised an average poker set (I'm assuming that's what it was) actually caused a scare, though.

      F*ing brilliant.

      I suppose I should also add that I don't really condone disrupting the peeps who keep up national security and all... But it is a genius way to make a statement, and I'm sure we all agree with the statement, if not completely with the method of delivery. Of course, I'm sure a lot of you would have done this yourself if you'd thought of it first and lived in the area. F*ing brilliant.

      By the way, is this story actually true?

        Just imagine poker chip cases on every side of the building inside the building sitting on every bench outside

          I personally feel that this is a terrible idea that NOBODY should try.

          Seriously, doing something like this is very dangerous for everyone involved.

          Go to a march, wear a shirt, wave a sign... DO NOT leave packages outside of federal buildings. There is a precedent for this and it's tragic and bloody.

          There is a law, written by Wil Wheaton(a former Poker Stars sponsored player,) called "Wheaton's Law." It is written as such: "Don't be a dick."

          This applies here. And everywhere.

                Yeah, an intentional act like this fits a number of definitions of terrorism. That's not fun.

                    I'm not sure I believe this.
                    It's actually quite true. He had the red spade on his name for a while. He used to blog for PStars events.

                    I had the pleasure of playing against him one time in a private tourney he set up and announced over Twitter. Broke to two tables, Wil was sat on my left, short stacked... I had AK on the button, knew he would be all-in, raised, Wil and BB(Cardgrrl) called. Flop was QTx, forget the rest of the board. Checked it down, BB had pocket 66. My stupid mistake not betting that flop. Wil was out and I followed him to the rail a few hands later.

                    It's the one hand that still haunts me to this day.

                      Do you seriously not understand how a metal box left sitting outside of an FBI building could be interpreted as a threat?

                      Well, whatever. You do your thing, I'm sure Charlie Sheen approves.

                      As for everyone else, don't EVER do anything like this.

                            Just filed a complaint with the department of justice. I clicked on the "report a crime" tab. it reads. "On April 15, 2011 the united states department of justice shut down four internet sites that offered online poker play to citizens within the united states. these actions are unconstitutional given that every defendant, under United States constitution, is innocent until proven guilty. I, as a US citizen demand that all restrictions against the alleged defendants be levied until such defendants are found guilty in a US court of law. Your unwillingness to do so can/ and may result in a class action suit levied by millions of US citizens who believe that the United States Department of Justice has willingly Broken laws that are clearly outlined in the United States Constitution. I do hope this matter is addressed as quickly as possible to avoid further action. YOU ARE NOT EXEMPT FROM CONSTITUTIONAL LAW. Act accordingly".

                            I now await the knock on my door.
