BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — A woman was arrested Monday after the bomb squad was called to the Kern County Human Services Building on Columbus Street in northeast Bakersfield.
Officers were called just before 4:30 p.m. for reports of a bomb threat. Police arrived and learned a woman was upset with staff allegedly overhead making statements about bombing the building.
BPD said the woman left a couple of bags in front of the building, but investigators later determined those bags did not contain explosives.
The woman was eventually taken into custody.
