Arrest Made In Monday Bomb Threat

POSTED October 28, 2013 1:40 p.m.


Oakdale Police responded to a reported bomb threat shortly before 1 p.m. Monday, Oct. 28 in a call that prompted a ‘shelter in place’ for students at nearby Oakdale High School.

Officials indicated the threat came from the Harvest Apartments area, off South Wood Avenue around 12:15 p.m.

The high school is on G Street and G Street runs in to Wood at its west end. As a precautionary measure, school officials ordered the ‘shelter in place’ when police responded to the call, with students already in afternoon classes. Teachers continued teaching; however, students were not allowed to move around or leave the campus while the order was in place.

Police reported getting a phone call from a woman in Turlock regarding a person having a bomb he said he was going to set off and when officers responded, they saw the suspect exiting the apartment. He was taken into custody without incident and a search of the apartment revealed a homemade destructive device, police said.

Richard Ray Sisk, 28, of Oakdale was subsequently arrested for possession of a destructive device and filing a false bomb report. He was booked at Stanislaus County Jail.
