A bomb threat Tuesday morning caused police to evacuate and shut down the area around a Pismo Beach gift shop.
The store, on the 100 block of Pomeroy Avenue, received the threat about 9:21 a.m. from an unknown subject, according to a news release from the Pismo Beach Police Department.
The business was eventually deemed clear and safe to reoccupy, and the area was reopened at 11:56 a.m.
The Pismo Beach Police Department’s Investigations Bureau is following up on the incident. No further information is available at this time.
