PD: Bomb threat at mall deemed prank

Posted: Updated:

A bomb threat at the mall in Meriden was investigated by Connecticut authorities Friday afternoon.

Around 3 p.m., police officials said a mall security guard got a call from a person being described at a young male that said a bomb would go off in the mall at 5 PM.

The state police bomb squad did a thorough sweep of the mal  before deciding the threat was a prank call.

The bomb threat was over by 5 p.m., according to police.
