Vol. CXVIII, Issue 33 35 Cents Fake bomb found on police car At approximately 6:15 am, Wednesday, Aug. 6, Cloverdale Police Officer Marcy Runnings drove by the home of fellow Of. ricer Mike Davis and spotted a suspicious object on the rear bumper of his marked patrol car. Runnings stopped and investi- gated the object--finding pieces of pipe, wrapped in tape with a battery and a clock attached to several wires. Residents living in neighbor- ing houses on Merlot, in the Vineyard Meadows housing de- velopment, were evacuated and part of Franklin Avenue was closed off to vehicle and pedes- trian traffic. The Sonoma County Sheriff's Explosive Ordinance Disposal Squad was called to the scene. The EOD Squad used a water canon and shot a jet of water at the object destroyingJt. They determined it was a hoax  bomb with no explosives. " Merlot residents were able to return to their houses at approx- imately 9:30 am. An investigation into the inci- dent is ongoing. The incident is not believed to be related to an explosive device found at Ex- change Bank in November of last year. Police are also unsure if the fake bomb was directed at Officer Davis, specifically, who has been on the force since Jan- uary of '96, or if it was directed towards the department. According to Police Chief Rob Dailey, there are no suspects or further information available.
