Bay Area

SAN JOSE (KRON) — There is a heavy police presence near the area of Oak Grove High School in San Jose Thursday night.

This just comes just two days after an explosive device was found at the campus on Tuesday.

Several roads nearby have been blocked off.

An Emerge Squad, known as San Jose Police Department’s SWAT team, was seen driving by.

Several officers were wearing would looked like tactical gear.

It is unclear where the officers were going.

A neighbor said she’s been trying to get into her home after working all day, but hasn’t been able to.

“I don’t know what happened,” Kenia Piazzoli said. “I don’t know what is the problem. They don’t talk to me.”

Several people are saying via social media that they saw helicopters flying above the area.

Classes resumed Thursday at Oak Grove High School after being cancelled Wednesday due to the explosive device.

On Tuesday, students were forced to shelter in place because of the device.

The district said on Wednesday that a school employee found the device in bushes near a student parking lot.

There was no threat or notification ahead of the discovery.  

The device is now at a county crime lab.
