VACAVILLE — A parolee was arrested late Sunday at a Vacaville business after he allegedly called 911 and threatened to blow up the Police Department, according to police.
Dispatchers received a call about 12:23 a.m. Sunday from a man who also made comments such as “cop killer,” according to a press release from the Vacaville Police Department. Dispatch traced the call to a business on the 100 block of Browns Valley Parkway, and police were sent there.
When dispatch called the business, an employee told police to “hurry,” according to police. Officers detained Brett Nye, a 44-year-old parolee from Fairfield.
Police said Nye made additional comments about bombs being placed at the Police Department and on police cars. Officers concluded Nye’s threats were false based on his exaggerated claims of bombs being placed at numerous locations without any apparent mechanism or ability to carry out his threats, according to the press release.
Nye was arrested on suspicion of making a false bomb report and abuse of 911. He was held on parole hold.
Nation’s Giant Hamburgers is located at 100 Browns Valley Parkway, where police reported the incident.
