Dubious people no threat at federal courthouse in Indianapolis

Suspicious camouflage-clad characters were thought to be creeping on the roof of the federal courthouse in Indianapolis this morning.

But a report about 9 a.m. to the U.S. Marshals Office in Indianapolis turned out to be "completely unfounded," according to senior inspector Mark Robinett.

Rather than a viable security threat, though, the call from the Chase building across the street turned out to involve window washers, according to accounts from both Robinett and Jo McNight, chief deputy clerk at the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana.

Some passersby noticed police cars with lights flashing parked in the street outside the courthouse, looking up toward the roof.

"The police went out to investigate, but nothing really exciting happened," McNight said.
