MARTINEZ, Calif. The California Highway Patrol's local field office was evacuated today after a couple brought in blasting caps, an officer said.

A Martinez couple came into the office about 11:30 a.m. to drop off toys for a charity drive, said CHP Officer Scott Yox. They also brought blasting caps left over from a relative who had served in the U.S. Navy.
