CENTERVILLE, Utah, Sept. 13, 2017 (Gephardt Daily) — A bomb threat received at the Centerville Target Wednesday night was a hoax, police said.

Centerville Police officials tweeted at approximately 7:45 p.m. that the incident was unfolding at the Target at 200 N. Marketplace Dr.

“We are taking precautions, but no solid info that it is a real threat,” the tweet said.

A follow up tweet 45 minutes later added: “We are conducting a walk through, nothing suspicious found at this time. We believe this is a hoax.

“We have info that two other Utah Target store have had similar calls, one of which was also a bomb threat.”

By 8:50 p.m., the store had been cleared, and was preparing to reopen, officials said.
