REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. - A bomb threat Friday evening caused the evacuation of the Conch Island Key West bar and Grill, according to the Rehoboth Beach Police. The bar, located on the 300 block of Rehoboth Avenue, was evacuated until investigators could complete a search for explosives. 

The Rehoboth Beach Police Department 911 Center received a call at approximately 8:45 p.m. from the Key West Police Department Dispatch Center, saying that somebody called in a bomb threat to the bar. Police said the caller, who disguised his voice, threatened that he had placed three pipe bombs inside the bar. The caller made money demands, and threatened that he was "not afraid to shoot officers." 

In response to the call, an evacuation began immediately at the bar, Conch Island Liquors, and sections of the Sand Castle Motel. The Delaware State Police Explosive Ordinance Disposal Unit, as well as explosive detection K-9 teams responded to the scene. After a search, no explosive devices were found, and patrons were allowed to return. 

Anyone with information is being asked to call Detective Tyler Whitman at 302-524-1391 or to message the Rehoboth Beach Police Department via their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/rehobothbeachpolice
