Bomb Threat Forces Evacuation of Veteran Services Building
About 11 a.m. this morning, an employee of the Humboldt County Veterans Services Office received a bomb threat from a man that may live in Southern Humboldt, said Lt. Ken Swithenbank of the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office. Employees were forced to evacuate the building at 1105 6th Street in Eureka while Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD) unit searched for a device.
“The caller threatened to blow everyone up,” Swithenbank said.
After a thorough search though, no device was found and employees were allowed back in the building.
