Bomb threat forces Apple campus evacuation

Disgruntled fanboi phone fun?

A bomb threat cleared an Apple facility outside Sacramento, California on Monday morning, but a subsequent search turned up no iXplosives.

According to a video report from Sacramento television station KCRA, "several hundred employees" were evacuated from three buildings at Apple's Laguna Blvd. campus in Elk Grove, a suburb of California's capital city.

Sacramento's KTLX TV subsequently reported that an all-clear status was announced by area police five hours after the threat, which had been phoned in at approximately 8am Monday, local time.

The Sacramento County Sheriff's Department used a quartet of bomb-sniffing dogs to search the facility, which was opened in 1992 as a manufacturing center, and became the home of the company-saving iMac when that machine debuted in 1997.

The sprawling campus closed in 2004 when manufacturing was moved offshore, but later reopened as a distribution and logistics center. ®
