CENTERVILLE, Utah — Police in Centerville responded to a Target store Wednesday night after a bomb threat, but at this time officers believe the incident is a hoax.

Centerville PD stated around 7:45 p.m. they received a bomb threat regarding the Target in Centerville but that there was “no solid info that it is a real threat.”

Police said they received report of similar calls at two other Utah Target locations, and one of those calls was also a bomb threat. Police say the other Targets that received calls were in American Fork and the location at South Towne in Sandy.

As of 8:30 p.m., police say they are conducting a walk through at the store but nothing suspicious has been found and they believe the incident to be a hoax.
