Bomb threat in NE ABQ

By Pilar Armstrong

On Wed., tonight, at 6:54 p.m., Albuquerque Police officers responded to suspicious activity at the US Post Office on 6255 San Antonio Dr. NE and San Pedro. According to an email alert from Officer Robert Gibbs, a postal customer became suspicious when they saw a latex glove wearing individual drop off a parcel into the exterior drive up post office box and drive away. The alleged suspect threw the gloves out the window as they drove away in a gray Mitsubishi SUV.

The APD Bomb Team closed off all traffic on westbound San Antonio Dr NE. between  Louisiana Blvd. NE  and San Pedro Dr. NE.

"Bomb Team officers were able to look inside the parcel drop box and did not find anything suspicious, just letters and apparently none of the letters appeared suspicious," stated Gibbs in an email update.

All closed streets were opened after the bomb threat was lifted.
