Swat Team, Bomb Squad Called to Hayward Home


HAYWARD (KRON) — A Hayward SWAT team and bomb squad are using robots to search a home where authorities tried to evict residents Tuesday morning, a police spokesman said.

Alameda County sheriff’s deputies were trying to serve an eviction notice at a home in the 2700 block of Gainesville Avenue before 10 a.m., Hayward police Sgt. Ken Forkus said.

Hayward police SWAT team and the sheriff’s office bomb squad were called to the home after deputies found “suspicious” notes and notices, Forkus said.

The SWAT team and bomb squad surrounded the home and are using robots to search it this afternoon, officials said.
