A bomb scare prompted residents to be evacuated from an apartment complex in Chico this morning. It happened just before 8:00 a.m. on the 2000 block of Pillsbury Road inside the Chico Courtyard Apartments.
Police were initially called to a report of domestic violence, by a woman who said her boyfriend had some type of explosive.
Chico Police sectioned off the complex to search for the explosive. Police were able to find the pipe bomb located between the apartment complex and Hwy 99.
Investigators determined it had been detonated earlier and no longer posed a threat.
The boyfriend was arrested on felony domestic violence charges.
Police re-opened the area about two hours later.
