Work was temporarily disrupted at the Land Transportation Office (LTO) 11 in Quimpo Boulevard, Davao City Thursday noon due to a bomb threat.

Noli Gudin, officer-in-charge of the LTO Motor and Vehicle Inspection Station, said they received at around 12:30 p.m. a text message from someone who claimed to be a concerned citizen, saying that a bomb planted inside the station will explode.

A security guard then immediately locked the gate and prevented clients from entering the office.

Bomb-sniffing dogs searched for traces of explosives around the compound.

Even impounded vehicles and motorcycles as well as boxes containing old documents were checked by the K-9 unit.

No bomb was found.

Gudin suspects the threat could have been connected LTO director Virginia Torres' visit in Davao City yesterday.
