CENTRAL FALLS, R.I. (AP) — Central Falls City Hall was evacuated after a bomb threat was called in to police, but the state bomb squad found nothing suspicious.
Central Falls Police Chief Col. James Mendonca (men-DON'-suh) said police received three calls in quick succession shortly after 10 a.m. Friday, each reporting a bomb at City Hall.
The chief says local police and fire personnel did a search of the building and found nothing suspicious. The Rhode Island bomb squad also did a search with a bomb-sniffing dog and found no danger.
The building was evacuated for several hours and nearby streets cordoned off.
