Call for information on bomb threat at IGA supermarket

POLICE are still investigating a bomb threat made against the Boonah IGA supermarket.

The call resulted in the shop being evacuated just after 3pm on September 20.

A thorough search of the building did not locate any suspicious devices and the call was treated as a hoax.

Police said a man's voice was heard on the other end of the phone when staff at the IGA store took the threatening call.

Senior Constable Wayne Noffke said the incident was being treated seriously.

"They cause financial hardship to the business involved, as well as emotional distress to the poor staff member who took the call," he said.

Anyone with further information can phone Snr Const Noffke at the Boonah Police Station.
