Hazardous-materials and bomb squad investigators descended on a Bermuda Dunes home Monday, and while it was unclear what prompted the response, sheriff’s officials said “explosive hazards” located at the home were rendered safe.
FBI bomb squad technicians assisted Riverside County Sheriff’s Department investigators and other agencies at the home on Darrell Road, sheriff’s officials said.
Sheriff’s officials said a piece of equipment called a total containment vessel was utilized by bomb technicians in their work at the home.
“This piece of equipment allows bomb techs to safely dispose/render safe explosives in a populated area,” according to a sheriff’s department Twitter post.
Officials indicated the investigation was continuing. More information was expected to be released later Monday.
