Bomb threat called into Whole Foods store

A bomb threat left on a Birmingham grocery store’s after-hours phone system that led to an evacuation on Tuesday, September 14, is under investigation by police.


The Birmingham Police Department said officers responded about 7:49 a.m. to Whole Foods, 2100 E. Maple, for the report of a bomb threat left on the store’s phone system from an unknown number. Upon arrival, officers escorted all employees out of the store and away from the building.


A trooper from the Michigan State Police and K-9 units from the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office and neighboring communities assisted at the scene, performing interior and exterior searches.


Police said no explosive devices were found. The incident is under investigation.
