Wells Fargo in Anthem evacuated due to bomb threat

ANTHEM - MCSO was called Friday afternoon for a possible bomb threat at a Wells Fargo bank in Anthem.

The Wells Fargo is located at I-17 and Daisy Mountain.

The MCSO responded to the initial call of the bomb threat and sent their bomb unit in. When the bomb squad entered they found nothing suspicious.

MCSO shortly after got another call, saying someone located a device with a timer attached inside the bank.

Air15 showed a bomb squad robot moving into the bank, to investigate the scene further.

MCSO was able to find a device with a timer on it, but authorities are still investigating if the device could have exploded or if it was fake.

The bank and the area surrounding the bank was evacuated as MCSO investigated the scene.
