Police respond to a bomb threat in South Burlington Saturday.
Investigators say someone called in threatening to bomb the Walgreen's on Farrell Street around noon.
The caller spoke with a foreign accent and demanded money be added to a pre-paid debit card.
South Burlington police evacuated the building -- state police bomb squad later confirmed it was a false threat.
South Burlington Police Sgt. Andrew Chaulk said, "We're well beyond the point where the device was supposed to detonate, so I don't think there's any possible public safety threat. But again, we just have to make sure that everything's safe before we send people back."
Police say similar calls have been received across the nation. It's possible the threat is tied to a national scam.
No explosives have been found in ANY of the incidents.
