Lawrence Berkeley lab evacuated over bomb threat

By February 07, 2013

EMERYVILLE (AP) — Authorities have evacuated an Emeryville office building used by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory after a reported bomb threat.

UC Berkeley Police Lt. Eric Tejada said lab officials notified police about the threat around 7 a.m. Wednesday. Officers were sweeping the building and have brought in five bomb-sniffing dogs.

Tejada would not say how the threat came in.

UC Berkeley runs the lab under a contract with the federal government. The lab’s main campus is in Berkeley.

Tejada says in addition to UC Berkeley Police, officers from the Department of Homeland Security and the Emeryville and Oakland police are all at the scene.
