Bomb threat closes roads to casino www.privateofficer.com
Officers say it all started with a vague, phoned-in bomb threat around 4:30 p.m.
At about the same time, in what appears to be a coincidence, police say a man tried to board the boat with a suit case.
Officers say he became uncooperative when security tried to stop him.
Sgt. Steve Evans says, casino security watched the man enter a bathroom in the lobby area, leaving his suitcase behind.
With a bomb threat and an unattended bag on their hands, police decided to treat the suitcase as a possible bomb.
Officials did not evacuate the casino.
“It ended up being clothes,” Sgt. Evans said. “So what I think it’s going to come to, is this guy was in the wrong place with a suitcase at the wrong time.”
Officers took the suitcase to the casino parking garage where a device called a disrupter was used to make sure – if there was a bomb inside, it would not go off. There was no bomb.
