Bomb threat emailed to RBL’s south branches

Operations at Republic Bank (RBL) branches in the Southland were disrupted yesterday, after a bomb threat was made.

The threat was made via email.

The police were called in around midday at branches in San Fernando, including High Street and Cipero Street as well as South Park in Tarouba, Marabella, Princes Town and the Gulf View branches.

Employees and customers were evacuated from the buildings as police and sniffer dogs searched the premises for bombs or other hazardous materials.

However, no bomb was found, and at around 2 pm, the scene at Lower High Street was cleared.
