Police give 'all clear' after bomb threat called in to Durham, NH pharmacy

Posted: Updated:

DURHAM, NH (MyFoxBoston.com) -- Police gave the "all clear" after a bomb threat was called in to a pharmacy in Durham, N.H. Friday.

At about 4:30 p.m., someone called the Rite Aid Pharmacy in Durham and said that a bomb was in a car or cars parked in the Mill Plaza parking lot. The caller told the employee on the phone to activate prepaid debit cards from the store and to give the caller the debit card numbers, officials say. If the employee did not give the caller the numbers, the bombs would be set off. The caller planned to call back for the card numbers.

All of the businesses in the plaza, a nearby apartment complex and about 50 parked cars were evacuated. Mill Road was closed between Main Street and Faculty Road. Police and fire officials as well as the bomb squad and K9 were on scene.

Eventually, the "all clear" was given and people returned to their cars and homes.

Administrator Todd Selig stated, "It is unfortunate that nefarious people who make such threats are able to so negatively impact and disrupt the lives of hard working business people, residents, and public safety responders with a simple phone call. With some luck, police will catch these people."

Similar incidents happened in Manchester and Hooksett, N.H. Friday, officials say.
