Yesterday afternoon (Sept. 30), the Sedalia Police Department, Sedalia Fire Department and Pettis County Ambulance District responded to the CVS, at 100 East Broadway, for a bomb threat.

An employee of CVS reported to Sedalia Police that she received a call from an unknown man that there was a bomb inside the building, around 4 p.m.. The building was evacuated and the entrances were blocked.

A search of the building did not uncover a bomb and the threat to the Sedalia CVS was unfounded, however there were reports of numerous bomb threats across the country, targeting CVS stores.
