Officers were dispatched to the Golden Corral at 3:17 on Monday, January 5th after receiving an anonymous bomb threat, according to a Columbia Police Department news release.
They arrived at 3421 Clark Lane after telephoning the restaurant, alerting them of the possible threat. Management and officers evacuated the scene and proceeded to investigate for any suspicious objects found.
As a precaution, a bomb detection K-9 assisted in scouting the restaurant and the parking lot. Nothing suspicious was uncovered.
“There was no physical evidence or suspicious packages, objects, or devices found.” Sergeant Joe Bernhard, the Public Relations Unit Supervisor of the Columbia Police Department, said.
As of now, the Columbia Police Department is following no other leads.
