Bomb threat at Liberty Giiant Eagle today


LIBERTY

Giant Eagle at 4700 Belmont Ave. was evacuated for over an hour today while authorities searched the store after a bomb threat.

No bomb was found and the store reopened at about 4:40 p.m., according to the Trumbull County 911 Dispatch Center.

The threat was delivered at 3:23 p.m. to a clerk at Huntington Bank inside the store by a woman carrying a large bag bearing this message: “There’s a bomb. He comes for pretty girls. Can’t talk too loud or she can’t hear the ticking,” according to Trumbull County 911.

Liberty police contacted several communities to locate a bomb-sniffing dog, but were unsuccessful, so the store was searched manually.

An unidentified woman was taken into custody.
