Crossbow bolt found in Maple Leaf utility pole?

February 20th, 2013 by Mike

Update: It was embedded about an inch into the utility pole, about 6 feet off the ground.


A neighbor says he found this – dart? – Friday sticking out of a utility pole at Northeast 88th Street and 12th Avenue Northeast Roosevelt Way Northeast.

It was imbedded a little over head height. I looked online – hardly cupid’s arrow – it appears to be a crossbow bolt!”

The neighbor says he took the bolt, which is 6-7 inches long, to the Seattle Police North Precinct, but officials said there was little they could do without catching someone in the act.
