Bomb Threat Evacuates Children’s Center

Employees were evacuated from an office building Tuesday after a caller threatened a bomb.

The San Gabriel Children’s Center in Glendora was evacuated Tuesday morning after an anonymous caller called its main telephone line and made a bomb threat.

The call was made at around 11 a.m., and Glendora Police responded with a team of officers. All occupants in the building at 2200 E. Route 66, including employees from the Children’s Center and the Armstrong corporate office, were evacuated from the building, according to Captain Tim Staab of Glendora Police.

Officers searched the building, but did not find anything suspicious. Employees chose to return to work after officers cleared the area, said Staab.

The Children’s Center has two locations, one in Glendora and the other in Covina. When the caller made the bomb threat to the center’s main telephone line, he did not specify which location, according to Staab. Officers determined that the threat was most likely intended for the Covina location.

A Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputy searched the Covina location but did not find any evidence of a bomb. Employees in that building were not evacuated.

The article does not indicate whether children are in residence at this facility or if it's just an Administrative office. Either way, it's ridiculously pathetic when people target children in any way or manner. I think the most disturbing thing I've had to witness in my life is the increasing threats and violence aimed at children. It;'s a trend that really needs reversing.....now.
