Local Kmart evacuated for bomb threat

ROTTERDAM -- Police say a Rotterdam Kmart was evacuated due to a bomb threat on Monday.

Lieutenant Culbert from the Rotterdam Police Department says a call came in to the front desk at Kmart demanding payment and threatening the use of an explosive device. The store made the decision to evacuate and call Rotterdam Police who alerted the New York State Police K-9 unit.

Law enforcement officials swept the store and determined the threat was unfounded. They say the call was a phone scam that came from out of state.

Authorities say the investigation into the incident is ongoing, and they are reminding residents to be vigilant.
