A police SWAT team and bomb squad searched a Hayward home where sheriff’s deputies tried to evict the residents Monday morning but found no bombs or residents, police and sheriff’s officials said. Alameda County sheriff’s deputies found threatening notes indicating there was a bomb inside a residence in the 2700 block of Gainesville Avenue when they tried to serve an eviction notice just before 10 a.m. Monday, authorities said.
The SWAT team and bomb squad were called to the scene and remained there through the afternoon, eventually sending a robot inside to look for the bombs. The Hayward police SWAT team went in as well and was unable to find any bombs or people, sheriff’s Sgt. J.D. Nelson said. Nelson said they left the area at about 5:30 p.m.
