[UPDATED] Bomb Threat at Winn-Dixie in Boynton

A news release that sounds like the opening scene from a movie inspired by a Marvel Comics series, from Boynton Beach Police:

Police have responded to a bomb threat at Winn Dixie at 1620 S. Federal Highway. A man called the store to say he was going to blow up the store and they should get everyone out. He then laughed and hung up.
UPDATE: Police searched the store, finding no trace of explosives, and police are now reporting that customers are being allowed back in the store. Happy shopping!

The manager began evacuating the store. The manager then called 911. Officers are currently walking through the store looking for anything suspicious. Everything appears 10-4 at this point. No one is being allowed to enter the shopping plaza.
