An arrest has been made in connection with a bomb threat made against Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office headquarters. The incident occurred around noon Thursday. A woman called 911 and said a van was parked in front of the building and the man inside the vehicle told her not to move or he would blow her up. Deputies found the van in the parking lot at the corner of Union and Alarcon streets and found a man behind it. A bomb sniffing dog then examined the van, but found no trace of any explosive devices.
