No explosives found at downtown Eureka motel 

Eureka police say a report of explosives in a room at a downtown motel turned out to be false.

Police and Humboldt County sheriff's deputies spent three hours searching the room at the Christie Motel on Monday afternoon before declaring it clear of any explosive device.

Eureka Police Interim Chief Murl Harpham tells the Times-Standard of Eureka ( that a local bail bondsman called in the report. The bail bondsman said a man who was recently booked into jail told him that he had left C-6 plastic explosives in his room at the motel.

The suspect's name was not released.

The report led to the evacuation of a downtown block. Police say they are investigating the original report.
