Bomb threat leads to evacuations at Carlsbad mall

Posted: Updated:

CARLSBAD (CNS) - A bomb threat prompted the evacuation of a clothing store at the Westfield Plaza Camino Real mall Friday afternoon. 

Someone telephoned the northern Carlsbad shopping center shortly before 4:30 p.m. and claimed that explosive devices had been planted there, according to police.

A short time later, an American Eagle Outfitters store in the mall received a similar menacing call, Lt. Greg Koran said. That business was evacuated, and officers with a service dog were called in to search the premises.

Nothing hazardous had been found as of 7:45 p.m., Koran said.
