“An employee received a call, one of many prank calls, where they were told there was a bomb in the business,” Mara Rodriguez, SBCSD Spokeswoman, told VVNG.

“The business and surrounding area were evacuated, and deputies did a sweep for any suspicious items,” Rodriguez stated.

Nothing was found, and the business was cleared to reopen.

This was the second incident of its kind to have occurred in the past couple of days.

A bomb threat on Friday morning prompted the evacuation of a U.S. Bank branch on 7th Street, according to a prior VVNG article.

No arrests have been made, as the pranksters have not been identified. No further updates were immediately available.
