LITTLETON, Colo. — Littleton Police closed S. Santa Fe Drive in both directions near the Mineral Ave. light rail station Tuesday due to a bomb threat against a light rail train.

“Southbound Santa Fe Drive is closed at Mineral Avenue and northbound Santa Fe Drive is closed at County Line Road,” says city of Littleton communications director Kelli Narde.

City officials say a person yelled that he was going to blow up the next southbound train, and then he ran off. The man was not in custody.

A train was taken to the end of the line where the bomb squad with a bomb sniffing dog from Jefferson County searched it.

Nothing was found.

Narde says light rail traffic was not affected.

Traffic started moving again on Santa Fe Dr. at about 4:20 p.m.
