Former employee arrested for making bomb threat at Riverdale Lowe’s

RIVERDALE, Utah — A Lowe's store in Riverdale was evacuated Tuesday morning after a disgruntled former employee called in a false bomb threat, according to Riverdale Police.

Police responded to the store, at 4155 S. Riverdale Road, around 11 a.m.

Police used bomb detection K-9s to search the building but found no evidence of explosives.

Detectives researched phone records coming into the building, resulting in the arrest of Kenneth Gill.

Gill is facing a second-degree felony charge of threatening terrorism.

"This is a criminal investigation where someone calls and makes a threat, even if the threat is found unfounded, the threat itself is a criminal offense," said Riverdale Police Lt. Casey Warren.

Police said Gill made the call because he was upset about recently being fired from the store.
