Traverse City Pharmacy Receives Threat

Shortly after 1:00 this afternoon staff at the CVS Pharmacy at Front and Division streets in Traverse City received a threatening phone call.

Police say the caller had an accent and stated that he needed money sent to him or he would blow up the building.

The building was immediately evacuated. CVS reopened 45 minutes later after a K9 unit gave the all clear.

Police say the scam is similar to ones that have been happening across the country.
