Bomb threat at Home Depot last night

Stores in Johnson Drive shopping center evacuated for 2 hours during search

The Home Depot store on Johnson Drive in Pleasanton was evacuated at 5:30 p.m. yesterday after a bomb threat was phoned in to a store representative.

Pleasanton police said a store employee took a call from someone alleging a bomb was at the store, which is located at 6000 Johnson Drive in the Pleasanton

Square Shopping Center.

Store officials reported the threat to police and officers evacuated Home Depot and adjoining stores in the shopping center to safety as officers set up a perimeter and searched for a device with store personnel.

A BART police officer and a dog capable of locating explosives also searched inside and outside the store without finding a device, police said.

Officers are working to determine who made the call.

The shopping center and roads nearby were closed for about two

hours during the search.

Anyone with information about the threat is being asked to call

the Pleasanton Police Department at (925) 931-5100.
