The Hesperia Police Department evacuated a Tractor Supply store in Hesperia, California, following a bomb threat on Thursday afternoon. Witnesses reported that a male customer inside the store began making bomb threats at around 2:00 p.m. As a precautionary measure, approximately a dozen customers were ordered to leave the store and wait across the street in a nearby field. The authorities closed off the driveways to the business and instructed all customers to leave their vehicles in the parking lot.
According to witnesses, the male suspect arrived at the store in a white Dodge Caravan and proceeded to yell threats at customers, urging them to evacuate due to an imminent explosion. As of 2:20 p.m., no injuries have been reported, and the male suspect has not yet complied with authorities.
Sheriff’s spokeswoman Amanda Paslak stated, “We have a bomb threat, and evacuation took place. We advise everyone to stay out of the area until the threat is resolved.”
