CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) - A building in the Loop was deemed safe after receiving an emailed bomb threat on Thursday afternoon.
About 2 p.m., the threat was sent to the building in the first block of North Wacker, according to Chicago police. Just after 4 p.m. the building was cleared after no explosives were found.
Last week, a series of bomb threats in the Chicago area were found to be part of a nationwide extortion scam. No one was hurt, and no bombs were recovered.
