The Santa Barbara Department of Motor Vehicles field office was evacuated around 3 p.m. Wednesday after employees reported a suspicious suitcase in the lobby.
According the a spokesperson for the DMV, all employees and customers inside the building were told to evacuate and move their cars by officers from the California Highway Patrol.
The office is located on the 500 block of Castillo Street. Police say nearby streets are closed as a precaution.
The Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Department bomb squad was also called to investigate the suitcase. As of 4 p.m. the area remains blocked off.
