When Compliance Response Team (CRT) officers searched Jensen’s home, they stumbled upon “an object … that was initially suspected of being an explosive device,” read the Sheriff’s Office release. The CRT summoned the Sheriff’s Bomb Squad and the Lompoc Police Department, which established a perimeter around the neighborhood and sent out a reverse 9-1-1 warning to nearby residents.
