Police give ‘all-clear’ following suspicious packages scare


Police gave the all-clear after the bomb squad was called out to investigate suspicious packages in Southwest Bakersfield on Tuesday afternoon.

Three wrapped packages were left in the 5300 block of Office Park Drive, off Truxtun Avenue. The area is home to a number of businesses as well as the U.S. Social Security Administration building.

Bakersfield police did not evacuate any buildings and only asked for people inside to shelter in place.

Eventually, police determined there was no threat and re-opened the street.
