BEND, OR -- Mathew Henderson was arrested today for Disorderly Conduct, after someone overheard him saying he was going to blow up the Alexander Drake Building in Downtown Bend.

 

Henderson, who is a 37-year-old transient, was seen wearing a backpack when he entered the building on Northwest Franklin Avenue, agitated and yelling, when he was overheard. That person called 911. Bend Police responded, setting up a perimeter around the building, closing off several roadways in the vicinity for the second time this week. They evacuated the building and attempted to make contact with Henderson.

 

After approximately 15 minutes, Henderson came out of the Alexander Drake Building on his own accord and was taken into custody without incident. He and his backpack were searched and no explosive devices or material were located. He was lodged in Deschutes County Adult Jail.

 

Police do not believe today's incident is in any way related to the Bomb Threat Hoax of Monday, when someone left a suspicious package on the Deschutes County Courthouse steps.
