Bomb threat empties East Lake bank

EAST LAKE — A Fifth Third Bank was evacuated Monday afternoon after the company received a bomb threat, authorities said.

"A male called, and he stated that the place was going to blow up," said Pinellas County Sheriff's Office spokesman Sgt. Tom Nestor.

The Sheriff's Office was notified of the threat to the bank branch at 1100 East Lake Road about 12:45 p.m.

Authorities are on the scene, and there is no indication of an explosive device, Nestor said.
