A suspected bomb threat left in the bathroom of a San Simeon motel was apparently a false alarm, according to a Sheriff’s Sergeant.

Sgt. Anthony Perry said in a news release that Sheriff’s dispatch got a report at 5:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 26 of a bomb threat found in a bathroom stall at the Cavalier Inn, 9415 Hearst Dr., San Simeon. 

He did not explain the nature of the “threat” whether is was written on the wall or something more sinister.

Sgt. Perry said, “A precautionary evacuation of the business was conducted and the property searched for explosive device(s) utilizing a Sheriff’s Office K9 and a California State Parks K9, both trained in the detection of explosives.”

The dogs combed the property and no suspicious devices were discovered, Sgt. Perry said. They called the incident at 7 p.m. and the motel was returned to normal activities.

“No suspects have been identified at this time,” Sgt. Perry said. “Any persons with information related to this incident are encouraged to contact the Sheriff’s Office at (805) 781-4550 or remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at (805) 549-STOP (549-7867).
