Police working on an investigation found bomb-making materials in an apartment in the 700 block of Arastradero Road midafternoon today, according to police.
Interim Police Chief Dennis Burns reported that police officers discovered "materials associated with bomb-making" when they were investigating a related case.
Police Agent Dan Ryan said officers contacted a youth at Gunn High School and went to the apartment where he lived with his parents, where they found chemicals associated with bomb-making. The contact with the minor was initiated several weeks ago due to suspicious circumstances noticed during a traffic stop, Ryan said.
He said no threats were involved in the earlier, ongoing investigation, but declined to discuss details.
The three-story apartment complex has about 40 apartments, some of them vacant. Occupied apartments were evacuated as a precaution as bomb-squad members checked out the youth's apartment.
