California Highway Patrol reports officers found no weapons on a Greyhound bus following reports.

CHP responded to an incident involving a passenger on a Greyhound bus on Southbound Highway 99 and David Road Friday morning.

According to CHP, they received a 9-1-1 telephone call from the girlfriend of David I. Molina, who was a passenger onboard the Greyhound Bus. Molina made a claim to his girlfriend that there was someone aboard the bus that was armed with a handgun.

CHP officers located the bus and made an enforcement stop. The bus safely stopped on Valpredo Avenue just west of Mettler Frontage Road. All 35 passengers were safely escorted off the bus and searched for weapons. No weapons were located and the scene was rendered safe and secure.

The 19-year-old Molina was arrested being under influence of drugs and making a false report to a police officer.

After rendering the scene safe, the passengers re-boarded the bus and continued to the Los Angeles area.
