Police Investigate a Bomb Threat in Berlin

Posted:

BERLIN, Md.- Authorities are investigating the source of a bomb threat, after a search did not reveal any bombs in Berlin.

The Berlin Police Department received an anonymous call around 6 p.m. on March 6.

Police say the caller said he planted ten homemade bombs in and around the first block of N. Main Street in Berlin. The caller said the bombs were set to go off in three hours, but did not give a specific business name.

The Berlin Police Department, The Worcester County Bureau of Investigations and other agencies evacuated the only businesses opened at the time in the area: Globe Restaurant, The Atlantic Hotel and Rayne's Reef Restaurant. Police say they also evacuated a residence.

After evacuating, a Dorchester County Sheriff's Office K-9 team searched the area. They say a search revealed negative results.

Authorities are now investigating the source of the bomb threat and why they made the bomb threat. The primary investigation of this incident has been assigned to The Worcester County Bureau of Investigation. Any follow-up questions should direct to WCBI (410) 632-1111.
