Guam - Guam Homeland Security/ Office of Civil Defense Spokesperson Alyssa Benito confirms that a bomb threat that was called in around 7:30pm  Saturday was from a man who threatened that if Ricky McIntosh,.Jr. and Jathan Tedtaotao were not released from jail a bomb would go off at the dollar housing (Sagan Linayan) Dededo. McIntosh and Tedtaotao were arrested for the February Bank of Guam robbery in Yigo. This past week however McIntosh and two other co-defendants in the robbery case were acquitted after Tedtatao backed out of his plea deal and refused to testify against them. Emergency response officials are on scene along with the military's bomb squad  where a suspicous package was found in the dollar housing area. More than 100 families were evacuated as a safety precaution.

The all-clear was given at 3am.
