Bexley: Bomb threat brings police to Main Street business

On July 24, Bexley police were dispatched to CVS Pharmacy, 2532 E. Main St., on a bomb threat.

According to the complainant, an unknown person called the business and demanded that seven gift cards be loaded with $500 each and be sent to him.
