Six police vehicles and two fire rescue trucks closed off the 7-11 on Avenue B and Oak Street, just a block north of UNT, after a bomb threat was called in to the Denton Police Department.

Officials closed off the parking lot, one lane of Oak Street and the block of Avenue B between Oak and Hickory as a dog searched nearby parked cars and the 7-11’s dumpster. Finding nothing, officials left the area after about 15 minutes.

Denton Police public information officer Ryan Grelle said there have been other anonymous bomb threats within the past couple of days, but declined to give the caller’s demands or details about the other threats because the investigation is still open.

Making a fake bomb threat is a federal offense punishable by up to 10 years in prison.
