PHOENIX - Phoenix police identified a 76-year-old man who left an SUV in front of a building with a note that said a bomb was inside the vehicle Friday.
According to Phoenix police Sgt. Steve Martos, witnesses saw Elias Carras, 76, park a Lexus SUV around 3:30 p.m. in the parking lot of an office near 12th Street and Osborn Road.
After parking the vehicle, Carras walked away.
Witnesses who work in the building thought it looked suspicious, so they checked the vehicle, Martos said. That's when they noticed the note on the dash, saying there was a bomb inside the SUV.
Martos said witnesses followed Carras to a home and called police.
Phoenix police officers arrived and called the bomb squad, but Carras was not initially located, Martos said.
As police were closing off Osborn Road, Carras reportedly approached an officer and admitted the SUV belonged to him and he put the note in the vehicle.
The bomb squad searched the vehicle, but a device was not found.
A motive has not yet been determined.
