Bomb Claim Shuts Down BART Service

A man who announced there was a bomb on a BART train at the North Berkeley station caused systemwide delays this afternoon, a BART spokesman said.

Police responded to reports of a man who said there was a bomb at 2:23 p.m. and the train was stopped and evacuated, BART spokesman Jim Allison said.

Bomb-sniffing dogs checked the train but found no evidence of a bomb, Allison said.

Train service resumed about 10 minutes later. Because of the hold, there were residual delays throughout the BART system, BART officials said.
