YOKOSUKA NAVAL BASE, Japan — One person was in custody Wednesday following a bomb threat that spurred evacuations and closed off some areas for several hours at the home of the Navy’s 7th Fleet south of Tokyo, officials said.

The threat came in at 3:58 p.m. targeting a barracks for single sailors near the Personnel Support Detachment building, according to Yokosuka spokesman Randall Baucom. Officials evacuated the area and closed nearby roads for about five hours “out of an abundance of caution,” he said. https://www.stripes.com/news/pacific/one-person-in-custody-after-bomb-threat-causes-evacuations-rush-hour-road-closures-at-yokosuka-naval-base-1.606202
