Hesperia CVS evacuated after bomb threat hoax

HESPERIA, Calif. (VVNG.com) — Customers and employees were rushed out of a Hesperia CVS store after a bomb threat Friday evening.

It happened March 30, 2018, at the CVS Pharmacy located at 16975 Bear Valley Drive.

According to Sheriff’s Spokeswoman Cindy Bachman, “the call came in at 5:19 pm stating a male caller said there was a bomb on the roof.”

Deputies responded to the business and evacuated employees and customers who were shopping inside.

Amber Poore, of Hesperia, said she was approaching the checkout stand when an employee asked her to leave without purchasing anything. “At first I was a bit taken back then it clicked in my head something wasn’t right. I just grabbed my kids and jammed out.”

As Amber and her children frantically left the store and walked towards her car,  she admits still not having any idea about what was going on.

“It makes you think how easy you can be caught up in something very serious while just out getting a few things at a store,” stated Amber.

Bachman said deputies conducted a search of the interior, including the roof and determined the bomb threat to be unfounded.
