Multiple agencies are investigating a phoned-in bomb threat to a Springfield Avenue business.
An employee of the store received a call at 7:23 p.m. Sept. 10 that claimed bombs were located in the business and would be activated if the employee did not provide him with "Green Dot Moneypaks," which are pre-paid cards, New Providence police said.
Patrols evacuated the business as a K-9 unit from the Union County Sheriff’s Office responded to search for explosive devices. The search revealed no explosives in the store.
The Detective Bureau, Union County Prosecutor’s Office and FBI are investigating this incident.
