A 53-year-old Lancaster man who claimed there was a bomb on a Metrolink train Tuesday was arrested after officials discovered he was subject to an outstanding warrant, police said.
The man, who was not immediately identified, reportedly told a female passenger that there was a bomb on the train, which was coming from the Antelope Valley, said Burbank Police Sgt. Darin Ryburn.
The woman reported the comment to the train conductor, who called police at 12:36 p.m. The conductor stopped the train at the Burbank station, located at 201 N. Front St.
The station, Front Street and the Olive Street overpass were evacuated as the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department bomb squad investigated the incident, police said. Other trains were delayed during the search.
