Bomb Threat called into National Guard Armory

| July 22, 2015


TALLAHASSEE — A bomb threat was called in to Tallahassee Police Tuesday claiming a bomb had been place at the National Guard Armory in Tallahassee.

Tallahassee Police searched for a man who claims to have placed a bomb at the National Guard Armory Tuesday morning.

WCTV reported Tuesday afternoon that the Armory was evacuated and Tallahassee Police cars with flashing lights guarded the entrances.

TPD Spokesman David Northway told WCTV that officers are looking for a black man in his 40’s wearing camouflage pants and a black shirt possibly armed with a handgun.

Northway says the suspect approached a man in the parking lot of the nearby Dollar General store at the intersection of East Park Ave and Capital Circle SE and asked if he had a phone. When he said yes, Northway said, the suspect told him to call the police because he had placed a bomb at the Armory.

The suspect was last seen going into the woods behind the shopping center at the corner of Park Avenue and Capital Circle NE, Northway said.

Florida National Guard spokesman LT Justin Phillips told WCTV that there were about 30 people evacuated from the Armory this morning and there were no training exercises going on at the time.
