A woman is being held on charges she deliberately left a backpack at the Yuma Police Department to elicit fear of a potential bomb.
Police Sgt. Lori Franklin says Renee Tagliafero was booked late Thursday into Yuma County Detention Center on a hoax charge.
Authorities ordered an evacuation for the entire building and a Yuma County Sheriff's bomb squad was called in.
The backpack was found to contain non-threatening items.
Franklin says further investigation led to Tagliafero being suspected of leaving the backpack.
Police are urging anyone with additional information about the incident to contact them.
