HEMET, Calif. (AP) Police in Hemet say a federal building was evacuated for several hours after a man left a suspicious suitcase out front.
Lt. Duane Wisehart says a Filipino immigrant reportedly caused a disturbance over benefits Monday at the Immigration and Customs Enforcement office.
Wisehart says the man returned Tuesday and left a suitcase at the building, which also houses the Social Security Administration office.
Arriving police found him sitting at a bus stop at the corner with electrical wires and a suicide note taped to his chest. The man, whose name wasn't released, was detained for a mental exam.
The building was evacuated until Riverside County authorities blew up the suitcase, which was found to contain clothes, a stereo and a candle.
