Bomb threat made at pharmacy

TRAVERSE CITY — A bomb threat made by an unknown caller to a Traverse City pharmacy turned out to be bogus.

Grand Traverse County sheriff’s Capt. Chris Clark said someone called a Rite Aid Pharmacy on Tuesday about 12:30 p.m. and told an employee about a bomb in the store.

Deputies blocked off the entrance to the business at 939 U.S. 31 while a bomb-detection dog sniffed around the building. The search yielded no explosive devices.

“The incident is still under investigation,” Clark said.

Clark said the dog is newly trained in explosive detection.
