Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station deputies responded to reports of a possible person with a rifle on a bus on Saturday, which wound up being a fishing pole.
The call came in at approximately 10:20 a.m. that the bus was heading northbound on McBean Parkway, and deputies were requested to intervene.
The initial report indicated that a passerby in a car in the Valencia-area had reportedly seen a person get onto the bus with a rifle in their hand.
Deputies were in contact with transit services and eventually confirmed what the passerby saw was a bus passenger with a fishing pole.
“Deputies did respond to a call for service,” said Lt. Ethan Marquez of the SCV Sheriff’s Station. “However, it was determined to be a fishing pole.”
No arrests were made and the bus continued on with it’s route. No injuries were reported.
