SALISBURY, Md.- The Centre at Salisbury mall reopened its doors to customers Saturday morning, a day after the mall was evacuated due to a bomb threat.

Capt. Scott Kolb of the Salisbury Police Department said the evacuation of the mall got under way shortly before noon Friday when the department received a phone call from a man who claimed his cousin planted a bomb outside the mall.

The mall was evacuated and customers were ushered out of the mall to the parking lot of the Sears Automotive Center. They were later allowed to return to their vehicles.

Police first checked and cleared the exterior of the mall, before proceeding to search the interior of the 862,000-square-foot building with 10 bomb-sniffing dogs from various law enforcement agencies.

After a sweep of the mall that took several hours, Salisbury police said no explosives were found.

The mall remained closed for the rest of the evening Friday.
