SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Sacramento authorities have arrested a man they believe called in a bomb threat to a Target store.

The Sacramento Bee reports (https://bit.ly/1srnscc ) that the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department arrested the 38-year-old Carmichael man on Saturday.

Spokesman Sgt. Tony Turnbull says the Sacramento Target received a call Saturday morning from a man who said there was a bomb in the store. Turnbull says Target officials evacuated customers and sheriff’s personnel used dogs to sweep the store for bombs, finding none.

Officials say the Carmichael man was found with the cellphone that made the call.

Turnbull says the phone call was not specific and gave no motivation for the bomb threat.
