Sunnyvale Police HQ Evacuated After Citizen Brings In Explosives

SUNNYVALE (CBS SF) -- The Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety's headquarters have re-opened, safety officials reported shortly before 3 p.m. Saturday.

A bomb squad had been called to the headquarters at 700 All America Way and the building closed around 12:30 p.m. after a citizen brought ammunition and grenades to the headquarters lobby for disposal.

The building was evacuated at that time but workers have since returned.
