Schools Locked Down

The Bakersfield Police Department surrounded a home on the 500 block of Berkshire Road near Union Avenue and Panama lane in South East Bakersfield Monday. Sgt Joe Grubbs says they placed two schools (Valle Verde Elementary & Olivier Middle School) on a precautionary lock down while officers located the house.

Sgt. Joe Grubbs says a woman called 9-1-1 and said a man known to her as Brandon Bonner was at the house with a gun, she asked for police to come to the house and she hung up. Police searched the house and didn’t find anyone in the residence. He said there was no evidence of a crime at all. But they did run a warrant check on the person who was identified over the phone.

Sgt. Grubbs says they are now looking for Brandon Bonner even though there was no evidence of a crime occurring because he has two felony arrest warrants for skipping bail and robbery. Bonner was described as a 25 year old, male black, 5’10’, 230 lbs.
