Bomb threat Sat.
Giant Eagle at 4700 Belmont Ave. was evacuated for more than an hour Saturday afternoon 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.
