Office building in SLO evacuated after bomb threat called in overnight

The offices of the Community Action Partnership of San Luis Obispo County on Southwood Drive were evacuated Monday morning after a bomb threat was phoned in.

The threat was phoned in at about 3 a.m. and office employees got the message when they came into work, said Office Jeff Booth. The offices were evacuated and searched by the police. No bombs were found.

Employees were allowed back at about 9:10 a.m. Officer Scott Cramer told the assembled group of about 50 employees to check their workspaces themselves and report anything suspicious.

“We went through the building and opened up everything and nothing went boom, so I think we are okay,” he said.

The Community Action Partnership was formerly known at the Economic Opportunity Commission and is a non-profit organization that presents information on an array of community-based programs involving health, energy, family and homeless services.
