UPDATED: Foothills Mall Bomb Threat

CREATED Mar 30, 2013

UPDATE: We are receiving more information on the origin of the Foothills Mall bomb threat.

Tom Peine, a spokesperson for the Pima County Sheriff's Department tells KGUN 9 that Foothills Mall received notice of a bomb threat from mall security that had activated an alarm after receiving news of a perceived threat.

Following that notice, the mall was evacuated so that investigators could figure out where the danger was coming from.

About two hours later, no threat was found and the mall was reopened.

No one has been arrested and deputies are still investigating where exactly the threat came from.
