Threats that led to the closure of a gate and evacuation of some housing at Miramar Marine Corps Air Station in San Diego proved to be false, officials said Wednesday.

The north gate of the base was closed shortly after 2 p.m. as explosives experts searched a vehicle whose driver had made threats to guards, officials said. The threats were not of a terrorist nature and proved to be false, officials said.

The motorist was detained while the vehicle was searched. He was later released without charges.
