The Attorney General’s Office was evacuated for about an hour today as bomb-sniffing dogs searched the agency after a man phoned in a bomb threat.
Ryan Anderson, a spokesman for Attorney General Mark Brnovich, said a man called the agency’s main office at 1275 W. Jefferson St. at 9:50 a.m., asked if Brnovich would be in today, and said a bomb was set to explode in 30 minutes.
Anderson said the office was evacuated by 10:10 a.m. and employees returned to work at 11:20
The agency’s satellite offices in Tucson and Prescott were also evacuated.
No explosives were found.
Anderson said the agency has 1,100 employees, about 70 percent of them in the Phoenix main office.
