By From page A4 | January 10, 2014

VALLEJO — Police arrested three individuals on suspicion of making a bomb threat, after a neighborhood was evacuated Thursday afternoon in Vallejo.

Around 1:30 p.m., police received an emergency call from a resident on the 100 block of Evelyn Circle regarding a bomb threat, according to a new release from the Vallejo Police Department.

The resident reported finding a written bomb threat on the windshield of a car parked in the driveway of the residence, according to police.

Officers discovered a taped box, measuring 4 inches by 12 inches, wedged underneath the vehicle in the driveway. Police said the owner of the vehicle told officers that a similar note had been left on his car last week while he was working at a restaurant in Vallejo.

As a precaution the 100 block of Evelyn Circle was evacuated and the Napa County Sheriff’s Bomb Squad was called for assistance.

About 90 minutes into the incident, officers learned from the owner of the vehicle that three of his friends had become aware of the police action and told him that they had placed the note and fake bomb as a prank, the release states.

Police said the trio agreed to come to the scene.

Dijon Scott-Ward, Izaak Casey and William Appling, all 19-year-old Vallejo residents, were arrested and booked into the Solano County Jail on felony bomb threat charges.
