Guam - Andersen Air Force Base officials have confirmed that two individuals were taken into custody for Thursday's bomb threat incident. U.S. Air Force Spokesperson Tech Sergeant Mike Andriacco says the two people - one an active duty military member and other a retiree - both entered a building on base and one made claim that he had bomb in a car on the base, which prompted someone to call in Security Forces to investigate.

As a result the base was on lockdown for about two hours, as authorities searched for the two men. Andriacco adds that the event was a false bomb threat and that it's business as usual on the base. He says an investigation is also ongoing to determine the charges for the pair.
