The DMV field office in Concord shut down briefly this afternoon after a suspicious briefcase was spotted near a building entryway, a DMV spokeswoman said. The abandoned briefcase was reported around 12:20 p.m., prompting California Highway Patrol officers to evacuate the office located at 2070 Diamond Blvd., DMV spokeswoman Jessica Gonzalez said.
The Walnut Creek police bomb squad arrived around 1:15 p.m. and after an evaluation, determined that the briefcase was not a threat. Patrons were allowed back inside the DMV at 1:45 p.m. Gonzalez said she did not know how many people were inside the office at the time of the evacuation.
