Merced police: Bank bomb threat was fake

Merced police said a bomb threat called Wednesday afternoon into a Wells Fargo bank on North G Street was fake.

The California Highway Patrol was called at 1:16 p.m. Monday by a male caller who said there were bombs placed at two addresses on North G Street, set to explode in one hour, according to Merced police Cmdr. Floyd Higdon. Police officers and firefighters were dispatched to the scene and didn't find anything suspicious, Higdon said.

The bank remained open. No suspects have been arrested.
